The Further Inquiry
(NY), Viking, (1990). An account of Kesey's famous bus trip with the Merry Pranksters in 1964, written in the form of an imaginary "trial" of the spirit of Neal Cassady -- holy fool and avatar or con man extraordinaire? Cassady was the driver of the bus, and a charismatic figure who inspired and sometimes intimidated the mostly younger people who surrounded him. He had been Jack Kerouac's sidekick on the journey that inspired Kerouac's novel On The Road, and was thus already a legend by the time of the bus trip. Small quarto, multi-colored pages, heavily illustrated with photographs including many of Cassady, and a "flip-book" moving picture of Cassady at the lower corner of the pages. Signed by Kesey. Upper outer corner bumped, else fine in a fine dust jacket. [#031701] SOLD
