Athlete, stage actor, journalist, frat boy and, yes, prankster, he was a "most talented" big man on campus. After an abortive acting career, he gained admittance to Wallace Stegner 's elite fellowship at Stanford and was born as a writer.
Kesey's years on the San Francisco Peninsula are the heart of this book. On an unpaved Palo Alto street called Perry Lane , he became the center of a legendary bohemian "intellectual party scene. These experiences, coupled with his rural Oregon upbringing, informed his singular first novels - "Cuckoo's Nest" was sparked in part by a peyote trip.
When Perry Lane was bulldozed, he moved to La Honda and continued the writing - and partying, in what his friend Hunter S. Thompson called "the world capital of madness. This book ends as Kesey was about to gain renown, but to him it was bigger than literary success.
Growing up in rural Oregon, Ken Kesey was an all-American kid. A star athlete, excelling in wresting and football, an avid participant in school plays, a self-taught magician and natural showman. He became good enough at magic that his shows paid part of his college tuition. He was a jock, frat man and teetotaler during his undergraduate years at the University of Oregon.
He married his hometown sweetheart in his junior year.
