Jack Kerouac Desk - Nearly finished? Lost in spools. The draft of Jack Kerouac’s Beat-defining phenomenon ‘On the Road’ appeared to the world in April 1951 as a single 36 metre (120-foot) role of paper.
1960s Beatnick Slang. It's really Tough ! :) As a kid I remember people saying some of these terms. I vividly remember everyone saying something was "tough" meaning cool or great. The weirdest expression I remember was to say that some one was either "hard" or "collegiate".
