Ken Kesey's first book, One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest (1962), is one of the best-known American novels of the 1960s. The tale was made into an Oscar-winning 1975 movie starring Jack Nicholson as R.P. McMurphy, the wily convict who feigns insanity and escapes from prison into a mental hospital. Kesey's next novel, Sometimes a Great Notion, was published in 1964; the same year he drove cross-country in an old schoolbus with a group of like-minded literary hippies, including Jack Kerouac's On the Road companion Neal Cassady. They named the bus Further, called themselves the Merry Pranksters, took LSD, and became counterculture legends. (Their story was told by Tom Wolfe in his 1968 book The Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test.) In later years Kesey lived on a farm in Oregon where he wrote, raised cattle and served as an elder statesman of psychedelia. He died after surgery for liver cancer in 2001. The book has been autographed on the title page by Ken Kesey......................BOTH BOOK AND AUTOGRAPH ARE IN VERY GOOD CONDITION.
