Ken Kesey was more than promising. He was a Golden Boy of the West—a scholar, actor, star athlete & one of the outstanding novelists of his generation—when he burst forth as an experimenter with powerful new hallucinogenic drugs, leader of the Merry Pranksters, &, finally, fugitive from the FBI, the California police & the Mexican Federales.Tom Wolfe, a journalist already widely known for his exuberant portraiture of the American Bizarre, plunged into the psychedelic world of the Pranksters, emerging with The Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test, a now-classic portrait of the coterie which gave the hippie world of the 60s much of its philosophy & vocabulary.

He recounts their romp across America in the 1st psychedelic bus, their alliance with the Hells Angels, their Be-elzebubbling takeover of a Unitarian Church convention, their conversion of the biggest anti-Vietnam rally of all time into a freak-out, their zany games of hide-&-seek from the law in two countries—all with a depth of exploration & a stylistic inventiveness which make The Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test one of the most memorable journalistic odysseys of our time.
