For those of you who teach about Ken Kesey or use One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest in the classroom, a new film about Ken Kesey’s Merry Pranksters and Further arrives in theaters in August. It might be worth checking out. The trailer is below.
I know that my students are fascinated by my introduction to this novel, and many run out to buy The Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test by Tom Wolfe. The local bookseller knows when I start teaching One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest when the kids come in asking for Wolfe’s book.
