Celebrating Ken Kesey 

Gordon Lish, ed. 

1963 First Edition.  Q: "What's wrong with reality as a subject?"   Kesey: "Well isn't it dishonest for a writer to try to convince people that things really happened as he describes them?  The very act of writing, even reporting that attempts to pass as objective, is an exercise in selection, picking and choosing this over that in order to emphasize this over that because the this suggests the deeper meaning of the scene.  An artist who claims to portray life lies."  A fantastic interview given before Sometimes a Great Notion [excerpts] was published and at the time of Kesey and the Grateful Dead's revolutionary "Acid Tests" were being conducted.  RARE.
