9780142003633: Spit in the Ocean, No. 7: All About Ken Kesey

Between 1974 and 1981 Ken Kesey self-published six issues of a literary magazine called Spit in the Ocean. After the revolutionary novelist's death in the fall of 2001, one of his closest friends, acclaimed writer Ed McClanahan, decided to carry out Kesey's vision and put together a final issue of Spit as a tribute to Kesey's genius and imperturbable spirit. Featuring contributions from cultural luminaries-including Robert Stone, Paul Krassner, Wendell Berry, Bill Walton, and Grateful Dead lyricists Robert Hunter and John Perry Barlow-as well as "regular folk," and several pieces by Kesey himself, Spit in the Ocean #7 is a loving and fitting homage to the gigantic and unique spirit of the merriest of the Merry Pranksters.

About the Author:

Ed McClanahan is an author and professor of writing whose best-known books include Famous People I Have Known and the novels The Natural Man and Congress of Wonders.

From Publishers Weekly:

Dedicated to the memory of the acclaimed author of One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, this last volume of a literary magazine begun by Ken Kesey in 1973 "aspires to...constitute, in sum, an intimate, affectionate portrait of its founder, one which both honors him and bids him a fond farewell." In keeping with Kesey's original objective that every issue should have a different theme and editor, this one focuses on the project's creator and is edited by his friend of many years. Kesey's intellect, compassion and creative spirit appear in this work through some of his own original writings, as well as through the literature of numerous cultural figures with whom he interacted and whom he influenced. Included are letters, previously unpublished radio interviews, poems, essays, stories and anecdotes, all of which resuscitate the eclectic writer and bring him "to the page alive and hale and shooting from the lip as only he could."
