Description

Originally published in 1977 by the Northwest Review, KESEY is a collection of the writer's original drafts, stream-of-consciousness outlines, poems, drawings and excerpts from works including Sometimes a Great Notion and One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest. The result is a fascinating glimpse into an outrageously creative mind, illustrating the development of Kesey's writing style, approach and voice. Facsimile reproductions of handwritten notes and sketches, along with Kesey's family photographs, appear throughout the book, lending it an intimacy that is all the more poignant given the author's untimely death in November 2001.
