A lifelong Catholic and Republican\, the author considered himself much more “pro-America” than the hippie movement that claimed to be inspired by his works.\n\nThis one-man show finds Kerouac in the green room of William F. Buckley’s “Firing Line\,” drinking and arguing with his ghosts as he prepares to give his final televised appearance. He differentiates between himself and other Beat figures\, particularly Allen Ginsberg and Gregory Corso\, and runs through his biography from the childhood loss of his brother to his failed marriages and taking care of his mother.
