Praise

“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 Times Book Review

“[A] 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 line between tragedy and comedy.”—Houston Chronicle
