Example text

Jack would sit motionless in the parlour, in a daze, doing nothing. He grew increasingly pale and thin. But then, as the horrendous events passed into memory, he began to play again, though now he played alone and with more introspection—his older sister Nin had her own girlfriends. He played the old family Victrola and acted out movie scenarios to the music, some of which he developed into long serial sagas, to be ‘continued next week’. In one of them the plot led to the hero being left tied up with rope, so Jack tied himself up and rolled around on the grass where the local children, coming home from school, saw him and laughed and thought he was crazy.

Jack, though neither tall nor stocky, TI JEAN 21 was strong and fast, with powerful legs, and as he began to play football informally with his friends, he recognized early on that he had more talent for the game than others. Soon, the boys wanted to pursue the game more seriously, so in 1935, Jack and one of his friends sent a letter of challenge to the Lowell Sun, asking local football teams to play them. They got responses, and in the first organized game, Jack, the youngest player on the field, ran at will, scoring no less than nine touchdowns.

G. Wells novels, and occasionally slept with his old high school flame Peggy Coffey. While Leo loudly bemoaned his son’s logic-defying choices, and World War II had sucked America into its conflict, Kerouac grew more introspective and self-absorbed, reading Faust, the book of Job, and everything Dostoyevsky wrote, with a keenly focused eye on the issue of fate and free will. Soon, in this context, Kerouac’s job at the Sun seemed silly and JACK AND THE BEATS TALK 35 pointless; he began writing the first draft of Vanity of Duluoz on company time, after he finished his assignments.
