The Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test

Tom Wolfe, 1968

Tom Wolfe's kaleidoscopic non-fiction novel chronicles the tale of a novelist character named Ken Kesey who leads a group called Merry Pranksters around the country during the sixties in a painted bus. Kesey presides over LSD-induced "acid tests" all along the way in a piece of journalism that reads like the epitome of American literature...on drugs. “YOU ARE HEREBY EMPOWERED!!!!!!!!!!!!!”
