Sailor Song 
(most are 1st Edition)
Item #KK02
By Ken Kesey, signed by Ken Kesey!
Over the past 25 years Ken has written many shorter pieces, but only now brings his considerable powers once again to bear on a full scale undertaking. Sailor Song is a unique and powerful novel about America. Set in the near future, the story takes us to the Alaskan village of Kuinak, a rundown fishing community of DEAPS (Descendants of Early Aboriginal Peoples) and lower-48 refugees perched on the Western edge of history. It's a scene rich with characters. Into their peculiar midst sails a mighty ship of last hopes loaded to the gunwales with a big bucks Hollywood film company. This famous studio/yacht has come north to film a classic children's book, The Sea Lion. Sailor Song is an epic novel that revolves around the question, "Does love make any sense at the end of the world?" It's about things that endure and come around again - back at you and back to you.

Kesey's Jail Journal
by Ken Kesey 

Description by Ed McClanahan:
Kesey's Jail Journal, for which I contributed an introduction, is a sumptuously oversized hardback volume of commingled writings and artwork that Kesey produced during his six-month sojourn in the San Mateo (CA) county slam in the late 1960s. It's a stunner, friends; lots of vibrant, full-color plates of cosmically illuminated, psychedelically-inspired manuscript, each page (as I wrote in the introduction) "so crammed with words and colors and faces and forms that it seem[s] ready to explode in your face like a letter bomb,"; Kesey demonstrating a dozen times on every page that everything he touched turned into art.
(putting the final touches on this book was his last work.)
Full Color hardback 144pp. Coffee table type book.

Last Go Round
Item #KK01
By Ken Kesey with Ken Babbs.
1994, hardback,  Ken's latest novel. It was around a sagebrush campfire in eastern Oregon that Ken first heard the tale from his father-about the legendary "last go round" that took place at the Pendleton, Oregon, Round Up in 1911. Hundreds of riders were competing for the first World All Around Champion Cowboy Title, but it was one special trio of buckeroos that provided the drama. When the dust cleared, everyone knew they'd witnessed something extraordinary. Includes sixteen pages of rare Round Up photographs.

Caverns
*RARE
By O.U. Levon (U of O novel spelled backwards).
Item #KK03
Forward by Ken Kesey. 1990, , first edition softback. When 13 students got together in Ken's writing class an adventure of some sort was bound to occur. Under Ken's inspired guidance, 14 imaginations were set loose - to create a tale that reads like a hybrid of the Grapes of Wrath, The Canterbury Tales, and the best of the Indiana Jones adventures. With a story line as original and intriguing as its own genesis, Caverns may just change the face of North American literary archeology.
