Kerouac's 'lost' debut novel is published 70 years after its conception at sea
The 158-page The Sea is my Brother, a tale of two young men serving on a voyage from Boston to Greenland, has been known about for some time, but is being described by Penguin, its publisher, as "a unique insight into the young Kerouac and the formation of his genius".
The author himself apparently noted: "It's a crock [of s@#t] as literature."
