Bio: Kenneth Elton Ken Kesey was an American author, best known for his novel One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, and as a counter-cultural figure who considered himself a link between the Beat Generation of the 1950s and the hippies of the 1960s. I was too young to be a beatnik, and too old to be a hippie, Kesey said in a 1999 interview with Robert K. Elder.

Quote of the day

Sound is naught but broken air, And every speech that is spoken, Loud or privily, foul or fair, In its substance is but air; For as flame is but lighted smoke, So sound is air that is broken.
