On The Road is SEXIST? Ah, come on, those were the times, man…….. But really, you think it’s "highly" overrated. What other American writer from that time depicted life "on the road" as well as Kerouac? You must not like Jack period. Or, for that matter, you must not like Bukowski at all! For he, my friend is sexist, racist, homophobic, a "bad writer", etc., etc, etc. I guess you could add John Fante to that list, as well as all those sexist musicians we all admire such as, say, Miles Davis! But opinions are just oinions, and to each his own. Whatever grates your cheese.
