A story about this — 5 years ago
You don’t have to be a dopehead LSD popper to appreciate the cultural effect of the merry pranksters and Ken Kesey,this book gives a feel to what they were at and how they worked. It also mentions the harmful effect that the drugs had on some,so it’s not just some hagiography.
What I liked about the book as well was the sense of group,coming together,making friends, falling out,who can’t relate that to their own life?It remembered me of American Graffiti,with drugs.
Whether you agree with the change or not the characters in this book changed Western popular culture and this is a fitting tribute to them.
