(n.p.): Viking. (1987). The uncorrected proof copy of this collection of short pieces, both fiction and nonfiction -- the fiction often being thinly disguised nonfiction, with just the names of characters changed; the nonfiction, on the other hand, often lapses into stories of imaginary characters: Kesey was a consummate storyteller, and twice found himself unable to conclude a "simple" journalistic assignment for Running magazine without inventing a fictional story arc to contain his description of events. Demon Box shows both the inventive writing style of Kesey's superb first two novels and the recalcitrant and rebellious attitude of Kesey's iconic counterculture persona. At this point, he had still not written a novel -- or at least published one -- since Sometimes a Great Notion in 1964, which coincided with his famous cross-country trip with the Merry Pranksters in the school bus named "Furthur." Signed by the author. Fine in wrappers. First Edition. Softcover. Fine. (Inventory #: 032655)
