From the literary wonder boy to the countercultural guru whose cross-country bus trip inspired  The Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test , this candid biography chronicles the life and times of cultural icon Ken Kesey from the 1960s through the 1980s. Presenting an incisive analysis of the author who described himself as "too young to be a beatnik, and too old to be a hippie," this account conducts a mesmerizing journey from the perspective of Mark Christensen, an eventual member of the Kesey "flock." Featuring interviews with those within his inner circle, this exploration reveals the bestselling author of One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest  in his many forms, placing him within the framework of his time, his generation, and the zeitgeist of the psychedelic era.
