Narratives of the Self


Pawel Schreiber and Joanna Malicka

This book explores the many interdependencies and crossovers between living and writing, or, in more specific terms, between writers’ lives on the one hand and their literary output on the other. Thematically divided into four major parts, the book focuses on different literary concerns and discusses literary works from the 17th century to the present day. The first part approaches the issue of autobiography and biography, the second part takes a close look at travel writing, while the third discusses various lives in fiction and the fourth deals with confessional writing.

Carolyn Cassady’s Off the Road – a Real-life Story Behind Kerouac’s On the Road


I’m not known as a writer or do they come for the book. […] The only reason anyone is interested in me is because I was married to Neal Cassady and lover of Jack Kerouac. That’s all the interest is in me, no one has ever cared about anything else.

(Carolyn Cassady in Love Always, Carolyn).
