They joined painter Joseph Stella, harpist Carlos Salzedo, and others including Alfred Stieglitz, Georgia O'Keeffe, and Man Ray, forming a community of modern artists who made New York the new center of the art world. .

Kesey's reputation as serious novelist was later overtaken by his role as the master ceremony of acid tests and the head Merry Prankster. Still Cuckoo's Nest was turned into a successful film that featured Jack Nicholson and Louise Fletcher. The book, long a counterculture favorite, has continued to grow in popularity. Kesey has inscribed the book on the front end paper: "To Joe / The slowly murmered / occasion equals the / quick trick. / Ken Kesey " Such inscribed copies of the book are now quite scarce.

        Raditzer

      Heinemann, London 1962 - The uncorrected proof copy of the first British edition of his third novel. Signed by the author. Matthiessen was one of the very few authors who has won the National Book Award for both fiction and nonfiction. His novel after this one, At Play in the Fields of the Lord, a National Book Award nominee, represented a significant jump from this book in terms of literary accomplishment. The book prior to this, Wildlife in America, started him on the path toward becoming one of our most highly regarded writers of natural history. This short novel, a tale of the sea that is reminiscent of Conrad, dates from an early period in Matthiessen's career and is uncommon even in the U.S. trade edition. This is the only copy of the British proof we have handled. Spine-sunned, else fine in wrappers. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Soft Cover]
