'The first time Jim Jones met Jack Kerouac's only child, Jan, she handed him an autographed publicity photo and asked, "Don't I look just like Jack in drag?" From that moment, Jones knew he was in for a wild ride, but when he began this book in 1995, few people knew the details of Jan's estrangement from her famous literary father. In Use My Name: Jack Kerouac's Forgotten Families, Jones not only delves into Jan's life and writing, but also extends his study to the lives of Jack Kerouac's three wives and his only nephew.'
