First Edition Friday presents: The Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test by Tom Wolfe

"You're either on the bus, or off the bus"

While we are talking about Ken Kesey, I would be remissed not to talk about his life as a Merry Prankster. During the mid-60's, Kesey and his band of Pranksters where an integral and infamous part of the counter coulture revolution. The toured the United States in a rainbow painted bus, causing light-hearted trouble, all the while consuming and sharing copious amounts of LSD.
'The Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test' is a chronical of this journey. While Kesey & Co. where becoming landmarks of American History - Wolfe was making a waves of his own with this book. This is one of the earliest (and the most popular) example of a new literary style - New Journalism. 
Featuring characters like Alan Ginsberg, The Grateful Dead, Timothy Leary and the Hells Angels - this is a monumental book in the history of the hippie movement which writing style echoes the chaos of the times.
This First Edition just came in today and will be online this evening
It can be yours for $300NZD
