Days with Sir Roger de Coverley: A Reprint from the Spectator
Days with Sir Roger de Coverley: A Reprint from the Spectator

An incredible book that produced an incredible movie starring Henry Fonda and Paul Newman (among others).
While Kesey is most known for his "electric koolaid", this book about a logging family in the Pacific Northwest has it all - amazing characters, humor, sadness, a very interesting reference to a past event involving a stepmother and stepson, and a horrible event that is hard to read (and even harder to watch in the movie version of the book). It's been a while since I read the book or watched the movie, but this novel still brings back great memories of when I first discovered it.
