Beloved by both Jack Kerouac and Neal Cassady, Lu Anne Henderson's story has never been told. Lu Anne was a beautiful 15-year-old girl in Denver in 1945 when she met Neal, a fast-talking hurricane of male sexuality and vast promises. The two married, and soon they were hanging out with a group of would-be writers, including Jack Kerouac and Allen Ginsberg. But Neal and Jack initially didn't like each other very much. Lu Anne taught them how to love each other -- in effect, making the Beat Generation possible, as well as giving Kerouac material for one of the seminal novels of the 20th century.
