Sometimes a Great Notion.
New York: The Viking Press, 1964. First edition, first issue with the publisher's logo on the half title page. Octavo, original cloth. Inscribed by the author on the front free endpaper, "Well, yeah this period does look a little better under the BULLSEYE........but not much For Jordan Ken Kesey." Light shelfwear, near fine in a near fine first issue dust jacket two small closed tears. A dust jacket that is prone to wear, this is one of the nicest examples we have seen. "The novel's exquisite prose, which often reads like lyric poetry, draws us into the daily lives of the Stamper family... We've heard Sometimes described as a novel about a family feud. That's like saying War and Peace is about one of Napoleon's shorter-lived military campaigns. Each of the Stampers is a three-dimensional person, and that leads to some fun, some heartache and a great literary catharsis" (Henley, Wikelund & Lindquist, 39). It was adapted to film, starring Paul Newman.
