It's nifty, this book turned 50

From Booklist Online "February 1st was the 50th anniversary of One Flew over the Cuckoo’s Nest."
"For many, the iconic 1975 movie may be the most familiar version of this story, either because they’ve never read the book or because they’ve seen the movie more often. Kesey wasn’t a fan of the film, and there’s a different tone to the novel that make it worth revisiting. The final scenes of the film are powerful, but still not quite the gut punch that Kesey creates." read more

If you have not read the book, we have two copies in our collection. We also have an e-book with critical commentaries if you're interesting in digging a bit more into this  work of 20th century literature.
