Encyclopedia > Book of Sketches

The "Book of Sketches" is a collection of "spontaneous prose" written by Jack Kerouac between 1952 and 1957. In 1951, it was suggested to Kerouac by his friend Ed White that he "sketch in the streets like a painter but with words."[liner notes] Over the course of the next few years Kerouac filled fifteen pocket sized notebooks with "sketch poems." After travelling across America and through Mexico in classic "On the Road" fashion, Kerouac sat down at his type writer and wrote the manuscript that came to be known as "Book of Sketches." "(Proving that sketches ain't verse But only What is)" Jack Kerouac
