First edition
Purchased 1989

I have a novel in mind.

It entails a cross-country road trip, something I've been wanting and meaning to do for over forty years, ever since reading Kerouac's On the Road (the only book I've read more than twice).

I need this trek for my soul.  

As for my intended novel: it needs context and texture, verisimilitude, the kind of smells and sounds and characters that cannot be researched on Google.
