|Stanley Twardowicz (L) and Peter Orlovsky|
Two important Kerouac figures were born on today's date -- July 8: painter Stanley Twardowicz in 1917 and long-time Allen Ginsberg partner Peter Orlovsky in 1933. Twardowicz appeared in one Kerouac novel, Satori in Paris, under his own name. Orlovsky appeared in several Jack Kerouac works: as George in The Dharma Bums, Simon Darlovsky in Desolation Angels, Simon in Book of Dreams, and Paul in Beat Generation.
You can read more about each in our recent remembrances HERE (Twardowicz) and HERE (Orlovsky).
Happy Heavenly Birthday to Messieurs Twardowicz and Orlovsky.
