Kerouac's Obsessions

'The things I write are what an editor usually throws away and what a psychiatrist finds most interesting.'
-Jack Kerouac

'And that is how I remember Kerouac--as a writer talking about writers or sitting in a quiet corner with a notebook, writing in longhand...You feel that he was writing all the time; that writing was the only thing he thought about. He never wanted to do anything else.'
--William Burroughs, in Remembering Jack Kerouac.
