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.

Fantastic read the descriptive and narrative allows us to meet, know and feel all chartacters in the book the fog is symbolic and the way that the system made people actually turn mad from the repression handed down.

saturnineinch, December 20, 2007 (view all comments by saturnineinch)
A brutal but optimistic testament to the consequences of a society where the majority rules over the minority. Kesey writes with humor, sadness, and insight as he develops the stories of flesh-and-blood characters that capture the readers heart and never let go.
