One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest by Ken Kesey was first published fifty years ago today. I absolutely love The Book and everyone loves The Movie, The Play is pretty good too. I love that Ken Kesey wrote the book after working the midnight shift at a mental hospital while tripping. Randle P. McMurphy, a better protagonist name can not be found outside of The Outsiders. And Nurse Ratched is soo evil. Everyone should read The Wikipedia Page just to catch up on the story a little and maybe read about Ken Kesey who was super interesting beyond just writing this awesome book.
Also, what a great book cover.
