One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest
(n.p.), Viking, (2002). The advance reading copy of the 40th anniversary edition of Kesey's landmark novel of the 1960s, here with a new introduction, and illustrations, by the author. Publication was slated for January, 2002; Kesey died in November, 2001, a fact not reflected in the cover text. Given the advance time associated with such prepublication productions, and their primary purpose -- to get copies of the book to reviewers with long lead times, in order that reviews can be ready by publication day -- the introduction in this advance copy is probably the last original piece of Kesey's writing to be published in his lifetime. Mild splaying to covers, else fine in wrappers. [#032881] SOLD

All books are first printings of first editions or first American editions unless otherwise noted.
