(3) Urban Myths: The Legend of the ” Scroll ” = Jack Kerouac’s Famous Scroll, ‘On the Road’ Again

29 Nov


Pour résumer:


In 2008, I went to the “Scroll” exhibit in nyc at the NY Library.

I published a post then (On Vox –now defunct); The whole story is amazing as people –journalists included –still repeat the erroneous story: Kerouac did not “type on a scroll ” –it would have been awkward, to say the least: . he typed on hundreds of pages of paper, which he taped then.

Nuance:  il n’ a pas tapé son ms. sur un ” rouleau”  de 36 m. (?): il a tapé son ms. sur des feuilles qu’il a collées ensuite.
