One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest by Ken Kesey

Book Description

Boisterous, ribald, and ultimately shattering, Ken Kesey's 1962 novel has left an indelible mark on the literature of our time. Now, in a new deluxe edition with a foreword by Chuck Palahniuk and cover by Joe Sacco, here is the unforgettable story of a mental ward and its inhabitants, especially the tyrannical Big Nurse Ratched and Randle Patrick McMurphy, the brawling, fun-loving new inmate who resolves to oppose her. We see the struggle through the eyes of Chief Bromden, the seemingly mute half-Indian patient who witnesses and understands McMurphy's heroic attempt to do battle with the powers that keep them all imprisoned.

Critical Studies: One Flew over the Cuckoo's Nest by Ken Kesey Critical Studies: One Flew over the Cuckoo's Nest, Paperback (January 1996)

An inmate of a mental institution tries to find the freedom and independence denied him in the outside world.

Sometimes a Great Notion by Ken Kesey Sometimes a Great Notion, Paperback (October 1977)

The Stampers, a logging family pit by circumstance against big business, are rough, hard men and women who live by the motto "never give an inch." Added to the turmoil is the return of Leland, a dope-smoking, college-educated half-brother whose arrival triggers a tidal wave of events that spiral gradually out of control.
