Spy-C, February 2, 2011 (view all comments by Spy-C)
This mostly forgotten collection of short stories by the enigmatic 60's icon and Willamette Valley resident, Ken Kesey, has a lot to offer. While not every story is a gem, every story has a complete visceral Kesey moment where you live the feelings the author offers up. Kesey still trumpets through the mundane to touch the sky, and several of the stories, including "In Search of the Secret Pyramid" and the ghostly Dickensian "Now We Know How Many Holes it Takes to Fill the Albert Hall" show the writer for the true master he was. This collection is honest, deconstructionist, and full of tributes to earlier works, times, and experiences. Worth the time, although a table of contents would have been nice.
