Jack Kerouac's musings on the creative process are collected together for the first time in this exquisite book. In the 1950s Allen Ginsberg asked Kerouac to formally describe his 'spontaneous prose' method, resulting in a list of maxims called Belief and Technique for Modern Prose. Kerouac entertains with sage advice, whether he's offering a sublime reminder to 'believe in the holy contour of life' or a practical admonition to 'accept loss forever.' With a foreword by Kerouac scholar Regina Weinreich and select photos from the Kerouac Estate, You're a Genius All the Time
is a beautiful and intimate work of inspiration.
