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

We work in the dark — we do what we can — we give what we have. Our doubt is our passion and our passion is our task. The rest is the madness of art.
