* AuthorAvatar: Pretty much every protagonist in everything Kerouac ever published. Sal Paradise from ''OnTheRoad'' is Kerouac. Kerouac uses avatars in virtually all of his novels, although for legal reasons, the names are changed from book to book. As a result, in ''The Dharma Bums'', Kerouac is named Ray Smith, and in ''The Subterraneans'', he is named Leo Percepied. Virtually every other character is these books is a thinly-disguised avatar of one of Kerouac's friends or some prominent Beat Generation figure as well.

* RedScare: Kerouac's relationship with the other Beat writers was strained by his outspoken and fervent anti-communism (and general all-around drunken paranoia)- during a meeting with Timothy Leary and Allen Ginsberg, Kerouac derisively referred to Ginsberg as a "communist faggot", and at least once accused Ginsberg of being a Soviet agent sent to manipulate him. (Creator/KurtVonnegut related a similar story about meeting Kerouac in his "autobiographical collage," ''Palm Sunday''.) Revealingly, Kerouac watched Joseph [=McCarthy=]'s televised hearings while [[http://www.culturewars.com/CultureWars/1999/kerouac.html smoking marijuana and cheering passionately for the anti-Communist Senator]].
