What Happened to Kerouac? the documentary

I'm watching the documentary "What Happened to Kerouac?" before bed tonight.

It's a good one. I like the biography and commentary intertwined. And I'm learning a few more new names of interest. This Joyce Johnson lady who wrote "Minor Characters". First impression is that she has made a writing career from writing about bopping a famous writer. Hmm...Not that nice of an idea. I baulk at it because...Why can't we ever just BE the ones doing the action that the men write about? Ha!
