About the Author

Ken Kesey (1935-2002) was born in Colorado and grew up in Oregon. As a young man he exhibited the charisma and imagination that would later make him an icon and one of the founders of the American counterculture. He received a scholarship to attend Stanford University, where he enrolled in the creative writing program. His first book, One Flew over the Cuckoo's Nest, was followed by Sometimes a Great Notion. His bus trip from California to New York City with his friends, who called themselves the Merry Pranksters, became the subject of Tom Wolfe's book The Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test.

Grover Gardner is an award-winning narrator with over eight hundred titles to his credit. Named one of the "Best Voices of the Century" and a Golden Voice by AudioFile magazine, he has won three prestigious Audie Awards, was chosen Narrator of the Year for 2005 by Publishers Weekly, and has earned more than thirty Earphones Awards.


"A glittering parable of good and evil."

-- "New York Times Book Review"

[Kesey's] book is a strong, warm story about the nature of human good and evil...A roar of protest against middlebrow society's rule and the invisible rulers who enforce them.

-- "Time"

"Mr. Kesey has created a world that is convincing, alive, and glowing within its own boundaries...His is a large, robust talent, and he has written a large, robust book."

-- "Saturday Review"

"Is it a tale of good versus evil, sanity over insanity, or humankind trying to overcome repression amid chaos? Whichever, it is a great read."

-- "Library Journal"

"You feel this book along your spine."

-- "Kansas City Star"

"This is a thoroughly enthralling, brilliantly tempered novel, peopled by at least two unforgettable characters...Make no mistake about it; this is a ward and not a microcosm."

-- "Kirkus Reviews"
