By illuminating Kerouac's early choice to sacrifice everything for his work, The Voice Is All deals with him on his own terms and puts the tragic contradictions of his nature and his complex relationships into perspective.

A clear-eyed vision of how Kerouac established his voice as a writer. Once again, Joyce Johnson, peels back the myth and breathes humanity into the lonely victory of Kerouac's success. It starts in the early days and leads up to On the Road. There's the usual glance into the Beats--the women, the drugs, the sex, the road trips. But the strength lies in the way the author weaves a narrative through Kerouac's development as a writer seeking a voice to call his own.
