Kerouac, Steinbeck and a new direction for Retracing Jack Kerouac

True to the title of the blog, I originally planned to limit myself to only posting photos of the places of importance to Kerouac that I visited. However, as I already put up most of the photos taken on the two trips in October of 2010 and March 2012 that provided the majority of the material for the posts you find in the archive of my blog, there is not a lot of material forthcoming directly fitting the blog’s title.
I had the pleasure to notice recently that the interest in my blog is still continuing (thanks everybody) despite the post having been few and far between in the past few months, so I decided to broaden the scope of the posts in the future. However, I should add that I plan on doing more discovery trips in the future, so there will be some new photos as well. But you will also find new posts on here with a Kerouac-theme such as interesting articles, blog posts, interviews and more.

The (not quite) first one is by writer and editor Stephanie Nikolopoulos straight out of Kerouac’s long-time hometown New York, whose book (co-edited with Paul Maher Jr.) Burning Furiously Beautiful will be published in the near future. So if you are not already familiar with her fine blog, this post is a good opportunity to do so, as the following link leads you onto one of her newest posts (and a very nice photo of a John Steinbeck statue, who I incidentally have been reading a lot these past few months and whose East Of Eden I believe to be the best book I have ever read)
