The Joan Anderson Letter is a book containing the letter written by Neal Cassady to his best friend and travelling companion Jack 'On the Road' Kerouac. Kerouac received the letter from Cassady in 1950 and later told the Paris Review that it had inspired his new literary style; referring to it as ‘the greatest piece of writing I ever saw’.
