Kerouac’s Eerie Prescience
But no one seems to have noticed Kerouac’s eerie prescience. Readers, look at this quote from On The Road, Part Two, Chapter Two:
When daybreak came we were zooming through New Jersey with the great cloud of Metropolitan New York rising before us in the snowy distance. Dean had a sweater wrapped around his ears to keep warm. He said we were a band of Arabs coming in to blow up New York. We swished through the Lincoln Tunnel and cut over to Times Square; Marylou wanted to see it.
Res ipsa loquitur, readers.
