Holmes met Jack Kerouac in 1948 and published his novel Go in 1951. Holmes' novel depicts the early Beat movement from 1948-1949. Kerouac is Gene Pasternak in the book. On November 16, 1952, Holmes published an article in the New York Times about the Beat Generation. This article, "This is the Beat Generation" can be viewed courtesy of Levi Asher's Literary Kicks web site. One commentator refers to Holmes as a "cerebral analytic Massachusetts Yankee".
