Memory Babe: A Critical Biography of Jack Kerouac (The Kerouac Centennial Edition, New & Revised) with: Ephemera

Corte Madera, CA: Noodlebrain Press, 2022. First Edition Thus. Softcover. Author's Proof copy signed by Gerald Nicosia. Offered here is the newest edition of Gerald Nicosia’s landmark work on the life and times of Jack Kerouac, — replete, as his years themselves were, with debauchery, bedlam, misadventures, and genius. With the publication of “Memory Babe,” Nicosia’s became the de facto authority on biographical scholarship of Kerouac, and his importance on literature a posteriori. A must have for any collector of Beat writing or Kerouac scholarship. The provenance on this particular copy is robust, as it was obtained from the author directly (whom we are proud to call our friend-&-colleague). Author’s Proof Copy / First Trade Softcover Edition Thus, First Printing, as indicated on copyright page (with reference to the many preceding editions likewise cataloged thereon). It is further distinguished by being signed (in bold, blue pen ink) by Nicosia on title page beneath his printed name. Signature reads: “Gerald Nicosia.” Book in very fine condition with only slightest shelf-wear to fine-edges, otherwise pristine. Very Fine. [Item #4997]
