One Flew over the Cuckoo's Nest 50th Anniversary Edition. Ken Kesey.

One Flew over the Cuckoo's Nest 50th Anniversary Edition.

New York: Viking Penguin, 2012. First Printing of this reissue of Kesey's classic. A Fine copy in a Fine, unclipped dust jacket. Kesey's One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest has left an indelible mark on the literature of our time. Turning conventional notions of sanity and insanity on their heads, the novel tells the unforgettable story of a mental ward and its inhabitants, especially tyrannical Big Nurse Ratched and Randle Patrick McMurphy, the brawling, fun-loving new inmate who resolves to oppose her. We see the story 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. Hailed originally as "a glittering parable of good and evil" and "a roar of protest against middlebrow society's Rules and the invisible Rulers who enforce them", Cuckoo's Nest remains as bracing and insightful today as when it was first released.
