De tirannieke Nurse Ratched regeert haar afdeling in de psychiatrische inrichting van Oregon State met beklemmende discipline. De patiënten houden zich gedeisd door geestdodende medicatie en de dreiging van elektroshocktherapie. Haar strikte regime wordt verstoord door de komst van McMurphy, een levenslustige crimineel die doet alsof hij gek geworden is om kans te maken op een makkelijk leventje in een inrichting. Wanneer McMurhpy ziet hoe de patiënten hun dagen hier doorbrengen en hoe hun levens verpieteren, besluit hij in opstand te komen. Hij begint opmerkingen te maken over het figuur van de Big Nurse, en introduceert kaartspellen bij zijn medepatiënten. Hij organiseert een ongeoorloofd uitje en weet zelfs twee prostituees de afdeling binnen te smokkelen. Hij betaalt daar niet alleen zelf de prijs voor, maar ziet ook hoe zijn vrienden meer en meer beginnen te lijden nu ze in aanraking komen met de buitenwereld. In de soms onderhuidse, soms uitgesproken of zelfs fysieke strijd tussen McMurphy en Ratched vervagen de grenzen tussen goed en kwaad, mentaal gezond of gek, leven en dood. One Flew Over the Cuckoos Nest is een van de grootste, meest indrukwekkende romans van de twintigste eeuw. Een ode aan het leven en de vrijheid.

An international bestseller and the basis for a hugely successful film, Ken Kesey's One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest was one of the defining works of the 1960s. This version of the novel is bound with the traditional cover. A mordant, wickedly subversive parable set in a mental ward, the novel chronicles the head-on collision between its hell-raising, life-affirming hero Randle Patrick McMurphy and the totalitarian rule of Big Nurse. McMurphy swaggers into the mental ward like a blast of fresh air and turns the place upside down, starting a gambling operation, smuggling in wine and women, and egging on the other patients to join him in open rebellion. But McMurphy's revolution against Big Nurse and everything she stands for quickly turns from sport to a fierce power struggle with shattering results. With One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, Kesey created a work without precedent in American literature, a novel at once comic and tragic that probes the nature of madness and sanity, authority and vitality. Greeted by unanimous acclaim when it was first published, the book has become and enduring favorite of readers.

An international bestseller and the basis for the hugely successful film, Ken Kesey's One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest is one of the defining works of the 1960s. In this classic novel, Ken Kesey’s hero is Randle Patrick McMurphy, a boisterous, brawling, fun-loving rebel who swaggers into the world of a mental hospital and takes over. A lusty, life-affirming fighter, McMurphy rallies the other patients around him by challenging the dictatorship of Nurse Ratched. He promotes gambling in the ward, smuggles in wine and women, and openly defies the rules at every turn. But this defiance, which starts as a sport, soon develops into a grim struggle, an all-out war between two relentless opponents: Nurse Ratched, backed by the full power of authority, and McMurphy, who has only his own indomitable will. What happens when Nurse Ratched uses her ultimate weapon against McMurphy provides the story’s shocking climax. “BRILLIANT!”—Time “A SMASHING ACHIEVEMENT...A TRULY ORIGINAL NOVEL!”—Mark Schorer “Mr. Kesey has created a world that is convincing, alive and glowing within its own boundaries...His is a large, robust talent, and he has written a large, robust book.”—Saturday Review

Tyrannical Nurse Ratched rules her ward in an Oregon State mental hospital with a strict and unbending routine, unopposed by her patients, who remain cowed by mind-numbing medication and the threat of electric shock therapy. But her regime is disrupted by the arrival of McMurphy - the swaggering, fun-loving trickster with a devilish grin who resolves to oppose her rules on behalf of his fellow inmates. His struggle is seen through the eyes of Chief Bromden, a seemingly mute half-Indian patient who understands McMurphy's heroic attempt to do battle with the powers that keep them imprisoned. Ken Kesey's extraordinary first novel is an exuberant, ribald and devastatingly honest portrayal of the boundaries between sanity and madness.
