Helen Weaver’s moving, intelligent and clear-eyed memoir will capture the attention of many readers because of her love affair with Jack Kerouac. (How many people can claim to have slept with Kerouac AND Lenny Bruce, by the way?) But in fact her book is far more than merely a very sympathetic portrait of Kerouac, and of his friend Allen Ginsberg and of the people around them. It is at once a wonderfully intimate insider’s description of a vanished age, an American Vie Bohème when all things seemed possible, and of the Beats, and of Greenwich Village in the 1950s, and a memoir which is never for one moment mean-spirited, and which is triumphantly honest and candid. — Michael Korda, author of
