Happy Birthday to Jan Kerouac

Jan Kerouac was born this date in 1952, meaning she would have been 67 years old today. I'm guessing that in many people's minds her talent as a writer has been eclipsed by her father, Jack. But one only needs to read Baby Driver or Trainsong (or excerpts from the unpublished Parrot Fever) to realize that she was a formidable author in her own right.

So here's to Jan Kerouac on her birthday, February 16.
