Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Kesey gained notoriety in 1964 when he and his Merry Pranksters converted a school bus into a psychedelic caravan with Neal Cassady at the wheel--a cross-country safari chronicled in Tom Wolfe's Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test. This look back at that LSD-laced adventure, written as a dramatic script, conjures a courtroom trial in which Cassady's Spirit and assorted riders on the '64 journey are held accountable for their mad melee. Kesey ( One Flew over the Cuckoo's Nest ) offers fitful flashes of insight into the '60s, and Cassady's free-associative, incantatory spiels pulsate with a Beat beat, yet, for the most part, the shenanigans seem insipid and sophomoric--a nostalgia ticket for hard-core Kesey or Wolfe fans. More than 150 color photos, Pop page spreads and a photographic ``flip-book'' section recreating Cassady in action may increase salability. 50,000 first printing; QPB selection. (Oct.)
Library Journal
Over 25 years ago, Kesey's Merry Pranksters painted a 1939 school bus in psychedelic colors, stocked it with cameras, sound equipment, and LSD, and headed for the New York World's Fair. The trip, celebrated in Tom Wolfe's Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test ( LJ 8/68), has become part of the counterculture legend. These two copiously illustrated works commemorate the silver anniversary of that historic journey. Both cover the same key events and prominently feature Neal Cassady, but their approaches are very different. Perry and Babbs have compiled a montage of photos, reminiscences, interviews, and historical commentary that documents the change in consciousness that took place in the United States between 1964 and 1972. The book provides a thumbnail history of the development of LSD, a flavor of the short-lived but influential hippie movement, and a glimpse into some of the most creative lives of the time, including Allen Ginsberg, Larry McMurtry, and Jerry Garcia. Kesey's work is a surreal script in which Cassady's ghost is brought to trial. Witnesses testify to Cassady's deeds, re-creating the bus trip for the court. The script is clever and entertaining but it will only be fully appreciated by those knowledgeable about Cassady's life. Such background can be found in Carolyn Cassady's Off the Road ( LJ 6/15/90) and William Plummer's The Holy Goof ( LJ 10/15/81). Photographs are a major part of each book, but there is little overlap. The Smithsonian's recent attempts to acquire the bus may spark reader interest. Highly recommended. Previewed in Prepub Alert, LJ 6/1/90.-- William Gargan, Brooklyn Coll. Lib., CUNY
