To celebrate Penguin's 70th anniversary today, the company sent out paperback books to give away on book websites. The two books I picked are:Jack Kerouac's "On the Road: The Original Scroll"
Thomas Pynchon's "Gravity's Rainbow"
I have an odd personal connection to both of these books. Jack Kerouac died in St. Petersburg, Fla, where I reside. A character in Pynchon's novel was named after my Wisconsin birthplace.
So, here's the deal. I'll send copies of both these books to the first reader who emails me (firstname.lastname@example.org), the answer to these two questions:What is name of the St. Petersburg, Fla. hospital where Kerouac died?
Who is The Kenosha Kid in "Gravity's Rainbow" and why did Pynchon give him that nickname?
