    Review

    Praise for One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest
    A work of genuine literary merit…. what Mr.Kesey has done in his unusual novel is to transform the plight of a ward of inmates in a mental hospital into a glittering parable of good and evil.
    – The New York Time Book Review

    brilliant first novel… a strong, warm story about the nature of human good and evil..keysey has made his book a roar of protest against middlebrow society’s Rules and the invisible rulers who enforce them.
    – Time

    The final triumph of these men at the cost of a terrifying sacrifice should send chills down any reader’s back… This novel’s scenes have the liveliness of a motion picture.” – The Washington Post

    An outstanding book.
    – (kesey’s)

    Characters are original and real… This is a tirade against the increasing controls over man and his mind, yet the author never gets on a soap box. Nor does he forget that there is a thin between tragedy and comedy.
    – Houston Chronicle
