Ken Kesey is an American writer and cultural figure who entered the literary world in 1962 with his instant classic, One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest, and followed it two years later with Sometimes A Great Notion. He took a hiatus from writing novels for many years to participate in a series of whacky pranks and intrepid trips, interspersed with shorter written works at irregular intervals.
This copy is inscribed to a school by Ken Kesey on the second page.
