About this Item: The Viking Press, New York, 1964. First edition, first issue with the publisher's logo on the half-title page of Kesey's second novel. Octavo, original cloth. Boldly signed by Ken Kesey on the front free endpaper. Fine in a very good first issue dust jacket with light rubbing and wear. Jacket design by Paul Bacon. "The novel's exquisite prose, which often reads like lyric poetry, draws us into the daily lives of the Stamper family. We've heard Sometimes described as a novel about a family feud. That's like saying War and Peace is about one of Napoleon's shorter-lived military campaigns. Each of the Stampers is a three-dimensional person, and that leads to some fun, some heartache and a great literary catharsis" (Henley, Wikelund & Lindquist, 39). It was adapted to film in 1970 (a.ka. Never Give A Inch) directed by Paul Newman and starring Newman, Henry Fonda, Michael Sarrazin and Lee Remick. The cast also included Richard Jaeckel in an Academy Award-nominated performance. Seller Inventory # 96438
