One Flew over the Cuckoo's Nest (Penguin Classics Deluxe Editions)by Ken Kesey
Synopses & Reviews
A visually arresting deluxe edition of Ken Kesey's counterculture classic
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.

A techno-thriller with a biting wit that compares the humanity of man and machine, from the critically acclaimed novelist Philip K. Dick.
In this lyrical and moving novel, Philip K. Dick tells a story of toxic love and compassionate robots. When Louis Rosens electronic organ company builds a pitch-perfect robotic replica of Abraham Lincoln, they are pulled into the orbit of a shady businessman, who is looking to use Lincoln for his own profit. Meanwhile, Rosen seeks Lincolns advice as he woos a woman incapable of understanding human emotions—someone who may be even more robotic than Lincolns replica.
Boisterous, ribald, and ultimately shattering, Keseys work is the seminal novel of the 1960s that has left an indelible mark on literature. Here is the unforgettable story of a mental ward and its inhabitants, especially the tyrannical Nurse Ratched and Randle Patrick McMurphy, the brawling, fun-loving new inmate who resolves to oppose her.
