Sometimes a Great Notion by Ken Kesey

 

Following the astonishing success of his first novel, One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, Ken Kesey wrote what Charles Bowden calls "one of the few essential books written by an American in the last half century." This wild-spirited tale tells of a bitter strike that rages through a small lumber town along the Oregon coast. Bucking that strike out of sheer cussedness are the Stampers. Out of the Stamper family's rivalries and betrayals Ken Kesey has crafted a novel with the mythic impact of Greek tragedy

    Sorry, I was just at choir practice and I almost passed out. I don't think I should be driving anywhere else tonight.

    I'm most likely not going to make it after all. Too bad, because I did read the book. Have fun, everyone!

    End of term is too crazy to read it, and I am too excited about this book to come and get spoilers. :)

    I finding this novel to be an extremely hard read. OMG. I've been at it for weeks and still don't have Leland off the bus and in Oregon. Slow and painful.
