An Awesome read
This is a brilliant non-fiction novel. Tom Wolfe expertly blends his fiction prose with his journalism techniques together to create a history of Ken Kesey and the Merry Pranksters and the counter-culture of the '6os they were such a huge part of. The Electric Kool Aid Acid Test is wonderfully insightful, informative and funny.
