The Town and the City
The Town and the City


Inspired by his idol, Thomas Wolfe, Kerouac explores the emotional territory of his boyhood through the five sons and three daughters of the Martin family. Growing up in a dying Massachusetts mill town, the young Martins must come to terms with their father's bankruptcy and World War II as they search for their own identities in the post-war years.
