KEROUAC & PRESLEY takes you on the road, guitar slung over your shoulder. Beginning in the Montreal neighborhood where a teenage girl was brutally murdered in 1975, the International Year of the Woman, the story travels to an Abbey in Connecticut where a former starlet and Elvis co-star fled Hollywood to become a nun. This is the memoir 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.
