Kerouac & Presley takes you on the road, guitar slung over your shoulder. Inspired by the history of Quebec and America, Kerouac & Presley is an American prayer.
Kerouac & Presley takes you on the road, guitar slung over your shoulder. Beginning in the Montreal neighbourhood where a teenage girl was brutally murdered in 1975, the International Year of the Woman, to an Abbey in Connecticut where a former starlet and Elvis co-star fled Hollywood to become a nun. This is the story of a wanderer who sets out to rewrite ?the blank and flawless page? that is America. Inspired by the history of Quebec and America, Kerouac & Presley is an American prayer in prose and paragraphs.
