Red Wax Rose

February 17, 2007

cover.pngShady Lane Press is proud to present Red Wax Rose, stories and poems by Darlyn Finch, first in our Kerouac Writers series. This rare and wonderful series takes readers inside the minds of emerging writers, honing their craft in 3-month residencies at the house where Jack Kerouac wrote The Dharma Bums and where he was living when On The Road was published, thrusting him into the international spotlight.

It has been 50 years since Kerouac haunted the tin-roofed cottage in Orlando, Fla., pock-pocking away at the keys at all hours, filling a 150-foot teletype scroll in 11 days. But his legacy lives on in Finch and others, thanks to The Jack Kerouac Writers In Residence Project of Orlando, a nonprofit that saved the house from demolition and restored it to pristine condition in 1997.

We’re happy to see Darlyn’s work in print and excited about her being part of the Shady Lane family. Darlyn will be reading from Red Wax Rose tonight at the Jack Kerouac House. Locations and information on the Kerouac House and The Jack Kerouac Project of Orlando can be found here.
