20 editions published between 1971 and 1998 in 4 languages and held by 38 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Immortalised as Dean Moriarty by Jack Kerouac in his epic novel, On the Road, Neal Cassady was infamous for his unstoppable energy and his overwhelming charm, his savvy hustle and his devil-may-care attitude. A treasured friend and travelling companion of Kerouac, Allen Ginsberg, William Burroughs, and Ken Kesey, to name just some of his cohorts on the beatnik path, Cassady lived life to the fullest, ready for inspiration at any turn. Before he died in Mexico in 1968, just four days shy of his forty-second birthday, Cassady had written the jacket blurb for this book: 'Seldom has there been a story of a man so balled up. No doubt many readers will not believe the veracity of the author, but I assure these doubting Thomases that every incident, as such, is true'. As Ferlingetti writes in his editor's note, Cassady was an early prototype of the urban cowboy who a hundred years ago might have been an outlaw on the range. Here are his autobiographical writings, the rambling American saga of a truly free individual

It should become and remain the definitive reference book for Beat scholars forever."'Carolyn Cassady Neal Cassady is best remembered today as Jack Kerouac's muse and the basis for the character "Dean Moriarty" in Kerouac's classic On The Road, and as one of Ken Kesey's merriest of Merry Pranksters, the driver of the psychedelic bus "Further," immortalized in Tom Wolfe's The Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test.

3 editions published in 2006 in Spanish and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

El primer tercio es el mayor esfuerzo literario de Neal Cassady, que a ratos debió de pensar que no tenía por qué ser menos que sus colegas en eso de escribir. Constituye su autobiografía, un relato pormenorizado -precedido de un largo 'Prólogo? en el que da cuenta de los trabajos y desvelos de sus antepasados- de sus tremendos y terribles primeros años, El primer tercio de su vida, que transcurrió entre miserias dando tumbos por los barrios bajos de Denver. Según Carolyn, su viuda, Cassady fue escribiéndolo a impulsos irregulares, de tanto en tanto, entre 1948 y 1954, época en la que leía también mucho, y sobre todo, a Marcel Proust
