Kesey, Ken -- One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest [Book]
Methuen & Co, 1962. First UK Edition. 311 pp. Hardcover: NEAR FINE. Dust Wrapper: VERY GOOD. Tight, clean copy, free of marks or inscriptions; slight foxing on top text block. Seemingly less common uncensored state without ‘1962 by Ken Kesey’ blacked out on the copyright page. The unclipped wrapper has some foxing/spotting, with negligible loss at the head of the spine.
Kesey was a major counter-cultural link between the Beat Generation of the 1950’s and the hippies of the 1960’s. One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest is the seminal novel that has left an indelible mark on the literature of our time. “This is a great book and belongs on the shelf with Orwell, Brave New World, Farenheit 451, Clockwork Orange, Darkness at Noon and Cool Hand Luke…the country’s great dystopic fantasies that have best symbolized the human dilemma and come down on the side of freedom”. brothersjudd.com
