The uncorrected proof copy of the only full-length book so far about Cassady, who was the inspiration for Dean Moriarty, the main character in Jack Kerouac's On the Road and later the bus driver for Ken Kesey and the Merry Pranksters on their legendary cross-country trip that instigated the birth of the 1960s counterculture. First Edition.

A Good Biography of an Interesting man the muse of On the Road Very Descriptive this book also covers Allen Ginsberg.Jack Keroauc,William Burroughs, and Several Other people of the Scene to a lesser extent.Very Informative and Engaging.

Criminal ... Saint ... Lunatic ... Genius ... Muse .... Once described by Jack Kerouac as more like Dostoevsky than anyone I know, Neal Cassady lived what others could only write about. Serving as the model for Kerouac's frenetic hero, the hip, Noble Savage Dean Moriarty in On the Road, and N.C., the secret hero of Allen Ginsberg's provocative poem Howl, Cassady was a genius of life lived on the edge of the abyss.

Now, William Plummer strips away the mystery surrounding this enigmatic figure.

Plummer brings Cassady to life: his coming of age in a Denver flophouse, his hustling across America, the car thefts that landed him in jail, his meeting with Kerouac and their mad-cap cross-country adventures, his experiments with sex and drugs, his second marriage to Carolyn Cassady, his teaming with Ken Kesey and the Merry Pranksters on an epochal acid trip, and finally his bizarre death. Black-and-white photographs add to this engrossing biography of an outrageous but fascinating life.

Neal Cassady (8 de Fevereiro de 1926 – 4 de Fevereiro de 1968) foi um escritor norte-americano e símbolo da Geração Beat (Beat Generation)) dos anos 1950s e do movimento psicadélico (em Portugal) ou psicodélico (no Brasil) dos anos 1960s, tendo ficado, provavelmente, mais conhecido por ser a base do personagem Dean Moriarty no romance de Jack Kerouac, On the Road.


Neal Cassady é personagem de mais de um livro de Kerouac. É também um ícone para mais autores. Aventurou-se muito mais do que Kerouac poderia descrever. Os modos de Cassady, ou Moriarty no livro, são a essência de toda a idéia libertária. Se existe o livro, foi porque Kerouac conheceu Cassady. Se existiu a geração beat, foi por causa de Neal. Se existiu The Doors, foi por causa de Neal Cassady. A melhor forma de descrevê-lo é como um Jim Morrison (como representado por Oliver Stone no filme The Doors) que não ficou diretamente famoso. Teve uma dessas mortes idiotas, mas compreensíveis, para alguém como ele. Uma figura impressionante, extremamente apaixonada pela vida, e totalmente desprendido e perdido, em busca de sabe-se lá do que...

Neal Cassady nasceu em Salt Lake City, em 8 de fevereiro de 1926. Cresceu em Denver, Colorado. Filho de um pai alcoólatra, não tinha moradia fixa. Ainda na adolescência, envolveu-se com roubo de carros e foi parar em reformatórios, onde iniciou-se na literatura.
Ele conheceu Jack Kerouac por meio de Hal Chase, um amigo que havia se mudado de Denver para estudar na Columbia University. Em 1947, quando Neal e sua mulher Luanne foram a Nova York visitar Hal, Kerouac já tinha ouvido falar de Neal e eles logo ficaram amigos. Jack se impressionou com a energia de Neal, com seu encanto sobre as mulheres e sua espontaneidade e vontade de viver. Assim como Allen Ginsberg, que se apaixonou por Neal, e eles logo se tornam amantes, em um relacionamento complicado que, entre idas e vindas, durou aproximadamente 20 anos. Cassady foi embora de Nova York em março de 1947, acompanhando Jack Kerouac em sua viagem “on the road”. Cassady provou ser o catalisador do Movimento Beat ao se tornar personagem de vários livros de Kerouac. Também foi mencionado por Ginsberg no poema Howl e em Hell's Angels, de Hunter S. Thompson.

Em 1948, Neal se divorciou de Luanne e se casou com Carolyn Robinson, com quem teve três filhos: Joan Allen (nome escolhido por Kerouac e Ginsberg), Cathy e Jamie. Eles moravam em Monte Sereno, um rancho ao sul de São Francisco, na Califórnia. Em 1958, foi condenado a dois anos de prisão por oferecer maconha a um policial em uma boate. Em 1960, ao retomar a liberdade, Carolyn pediu o divórcio.

Na primeira metade da década de 60, Neal se juntou a Ken Kesey, um escritor que estava realizando experimentações com LSD e testando os limites da sociedade junto a um grupo de amigos conhecidos como The Merry Pranksters. Em 1967, Cassady viajou para o México com amigos e morou numa casa situada à beira da praia, palco para dias e noites regados a LSD.
