Carolyn Cassady with her children Cathy and Jami and a visiting Jack Kerouac

“I kept thinking that the imitators never knew and don’t know how miserable these men were,”  “They think they were having marvelous times — joy, joy, joy — and they weren’t at all.” 

~ Carolyn Cassady told the novelist Gina Berriault in 1972.
