Adventures in father-daughter relationships, Highway One, and Jack Kerouac
by Natalie and Alan Karbelnig
About the Book
This 30 page Jack Kerouac style Road Trip book describes my four day journey driving down the coasts of Washington, Oregon, and California, delivering my newly graduated, Magna Cum Laude Art History BA daughter, Natalie, back to LA to face her uncertain future life. As her father, the book includes reflections on life as well as excerpts from Kerouac's book On The Road. This journal-novel defines the Beat Generation and serves as a template for all future road trips.
