One Fast Move or I'm Gone: Kerouac's Big Sur - TRAILER

Jack Kerouac’s 1957 novel, “On The Road” made him a literary rock star, but the fame led to his unraveling. So three years later he headed to a friend’s cabin in California to battle his demons and his alcoholism. The result was a second novel, “Big Sur.” The real life events behind the book are documented in a new film and CD, both called “One Fast Move or I’m Gone: Kerouac’s Big Sur.” Jay Farrar, leader of the band Son Volt, puts the words from the novel to music on the CD and joins us from St. Louis to talk about it.
