Ken Kesey's One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest captured the radical anti-establishment mood of 1960s America. Tyrannical Nurse Ratched rules her psychiatric ward with an iron fist and a penchant for electric shock therapy, so when the boisterous McMurphy arrives - intent on disruption and showing the other patients a good time - a titanic battle of wills emerges. Kesey explores the shadowy boundaries between conformity and individuality, sanity and madness, with devastating effect.

One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest
This classic is, quite simply, mind-blowing. An insight into human emotions and behaviour is given through the portrayal of psychiatric ward patients, and it is an incredibly powerful one. There are many changes throughout the course of the narrative, continually lifting the spirits of readers before shattering their hopes for the characters once more - the emotional roller coaster experienced by the patients is also experienced by you. Do not miss out on this book.
