Chapter 30 Summary

Ben Fagan visits in this chapter, and insists on getting Kerouac out of the chair he has been in for so many days on end. The two go to a park where Ben watches Kerouac sleep in the grass. He awakens for nonsensical conversations in which Ben plays with happy images in Kerouac's imagination, and reassures Kerouac that he is welcome to rest and recover.
