Kesey, Ken.
ONE FLEW OVER THE CUCKOO'S NEST.
Viking Press (1962)., New York: - First edition of the AUTHOR'S FIRST BOOK. First issue, in the first issue dust jacket, SIGNED BY KESEY. A classic book made into a classic movie directed by Milos Foreman, starring Jack Nicholson, Louise Fletcher and Danny DeVito. The story evolved from Kesey's time working as an orderly at a mental health facility in Menlo Park, California. Not only did he speak to the patients and witness the workings of the institution, he took psychoactive drugs as part of a project. Time Magazine named the book one of the 100 Best English-language Novels from 1923 to 2005. The book is bright and fine with just a few tiny spots on cloth; in an equally bright dust jacket with expert restoration to several small chips and tears. A sharp copy of the first-issue book and jacket--which is getting scarcer signed. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
Bookseller: Quill & Brush, member ABAA
