  1. Quoted from A. Charters’s book, Kerouac’s Life, ed. Mondadori 2004, p. 285
  2. “Kerouac wrote all his books under some drug’s effect, therefore each one is characterized by the specific substance he used the most while writing. On the road, in spite of all the reviews it went through, exhales a feeling of nervousness and strain, typical effects of benzedrine. After all the drugs he took while working on Dr. Sax, Kerouac’s hallucinations overflowed on his prose. He himself thought the text had a “really hallucinated style”, as he wrote under a marijuana’s and morphine’s uninterrupted effect.” (Quoted, p.60)”
