This 2007 photo provided by Gerd Stern, shows poet and playwright in Woodstock, N.Y. For more than 50 years, Stern had been wrongly accused of tossing what writer Jack Kerouac called "the greatest piece of writing I ever saw" over the side of a houseboat. The lost letter credited with inspiring Kerouac to create a new style of prose, called Beat literature, suddenly surfaced, no one was happier than Stern. The Associated Press reported Sunday, Nov. 23, 2014, that the 16,000-word screed to Kerouac from his friend and literary muse Neal Cassady was found intact last week in a house in Oakland, Calif. Actually poet Allen Ginsberg had sent the letter to Richard Emerson at Golden Goose Press, and he didn't bother to read it. The auction house Profiles in History is putting the archive up for sale on Dec. 17. (AP Photo/Judith Sokoloff)
