Ken Kesey - writer, counter-cultural icon (1935 - 2001)
This KBOO exclusive recording is from a talk by writer Ken Kesey, author of One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, given in Portland and recorded by KBOO volunteers in 1976.
Kesey attended the University of Oregon with a degree in Speech and Communications. He also received a Woodrow Wilson Fellowship to enroll in the Creative Writing program at Stanford. His classmates in the program included Robert Stone, Larry McMurty, Ken Babbs, and Wendell Berry, all of whom would go on to be noted writers and lifelong friends of Kesey.
