On the road with Frank, Kerouac writes to his NYC girlfriend

ALS signed “Jack,” one page on a 5.25 x 3.5 postcard, no date but postmarked Winter Park, Florida, April 3, 1958. Letter to his girlfriend Joyce Glassman, in full: “Robert and I took pictures all the way down, slept in Rocky Mount first night, Savannah second, now approaching Florida—warm & sunny—all’s well.” In fine condition, with two small pieces of tape to reverse, and light soiling. The award-winning author of Minor Characters, a memoir written about her relationship with Kerouac, Glassman (better known as Joyce Johnson) became entangled with the Beat novelist after her friend’s off-and-on lover, Allen Ginsberg, arranged for the pair to meet on a blind date. On the promise that he would write the introduction to the US edition of his upcoming book The Americans, photographer and filmmaker Robert Frank allowed Kerouac to join him on a portion of his two-year cross-country journey. For the book’s final version, Frank selected 83 of his amassed 28,000 photos for publication. Pre-certified PSA/DNA.
