What was Kesey's group of friends called?
It is the birthday of Ken Kesey (1935), who is remembered for his novel One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest (1962), a drama set in a mental institution. It received great acclaim, and was adapted as a movie. When he had to travel from California to New York for the publication of his second book, Sometimes a Great Notion (1964), Kesey's friend, Beat writer Neal Cassidy, arranged for a cross-country trip on a psychedelic-painted school bus. Do you remember the name of the group of hangers-on who went on the trip? Who wrote a 1968 book chronicling the events of the trip, and what was the name of the book? Enter your answers below.
Our specialties include Floridiana (Florida History, Florida Authors, Florida Related Ephemera), American History, Literature of the South, Military History (including, but not limited to, Civil War, Spanish-American War, World War I, World War II, Vietnam, Korean War), Children’s Literature, Maps, Leather Bindings and Rare & Unusual items.
