The magnificent second novel from the legendary author of One Flew Over the Cuckoo's NestA contemporary classic. (Chicago Tribune)
Following the astonishing success of his first novel, One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, Ken Kesey wrote what Charles Bowden calls "one of the few essential books written by an American in the last half century."

Out of the Stamper family's rivalries and betrayals Ken Kesey has crafted a novel with the mythic impact of Greek tragedy.
