March 12 is Jack Kerouac's birthday, aka the favorite author of all the who consider themselves deep and too cool for genre fiction. Benjamín Naka-Hasebe Kingsley , a Poet from Baltimore, Maryland.

He died of alcoholism in 1969 at the age of 47, twelve years after publication of On the Road. Okay, so in a lot of ways it sounds like Minor Characters. Two friends, poets Aram Saroyan and Duncan McNaughton, accompanied him. Now, what does that look like in a writing style? It was hard not to feel his legacy in the house. He explained the paintings on the wall, the one of underwear hanging out to dry by his friend Stanley Twardowicz, the one of the Pope that Jack had painted himself, and the one of his baby brother Gerard, who had died when he was nine.
