Tom Wolfe: The Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test

$ 350
This product is SOLD OUT.


Ken Kesey was a Golden Boy - scholar, actor, star athlete, one of the outstanding novelists of his generation. But his life took a turn. He did drugs, publicly and flagrantly, and became the 1960s incarnation of all that was meant by "hippie." Tom Wolfe turned a tour with Ken Kesey and his Merry Pranksters into THE ELECTRIC KOOL-AID ACID TEST. He recounts their romp across America in the first psychedelic bus, their alliance with the Hell's Angels, their conversion of the biggest anti-Vietnam rally of all time into a freak-out, their games of hide and seek with the law - all with a depth and inventiveness that makes this book one of the most memorable journalistic odysseys of our time.
