Jack Kerouac has a lot to answer for – millions of daydreams from hundreds of thousands of wannabe Beatniks sold on a life of misadventure as told in On the Road. Thankfully he also inspired some real creative types to do some actual work, such as Phillip Connors, whose latest book Fire Season charts his summers spent in a remote fire lookout in the forests of New Mexico (as Kerouac used to do). To mark its launch, Pan Macmillan’s creative team have produced 100 screen-prints of Jonathan Pelham’s cover artwork in the back-to-basics spirit of the book. And we’ve got five copies of the gorgeous print to give away…
To enter the competition, just answer this question. What is the name of the narrator in On the Road?
