About the author (1990)

Ken Kesey, 1935 - 2001 Born in Colorado, graduated from the University of Oregon, and since then a sometimes vagabond resident of the West Coast, Kesey has published only two full-length novels, but they have helped to give him a cult following. "One Flew over the Cuckoo's Nest" (1962) owes much to Kesey's own experience as a ward attendant in a mental hospital. This exciting first novel is told from the point of view of a half-Indian man who thinks of himself as the Big Chief pictured on the writing tablets of everybody's school days looking out at the other inmates in a Disneylike world. Its portrayal of the doomed but heroic rebel McMurphy stood for a particular kind of American individualism. Sometimes a Great Notion (1964) is a long, complex novel that troubled many of Kesey's earlier readers. Kesey's most recent novel is Demon Box (1987); although it was somewhat well received, it was still compared unfavorably to his earlier works. Ken Kesey died on November 11, 2001.
