The Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test

The Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test – Tom Wolfe

Wolfe’s first masterpiece is a trip through trippy times on Ken Kesey’s bus. Essays from Acid Test ground zero, featuring real life characters straight out of Kerouac. Hunter Thompson gives us details in his books and Wolfe gives us the scene, the zeitgeist. Interestingly, Thompson shared his notes with Wolfe at times, particularly for details on a party at Kesey’s house.
