    All Aboard With the Merry Pranksters

    Tom Wolfe. The Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test. New York: Farrar Straus and Giroux, [1968].

    First edition. Signed by Wolfe on title page. Octavo. 416 pages.

    Publisher's white cloth with multi-colored spine titles. Modestly darkened edges with softly bumped spine ends. Faint fading to top page edge. Dust jacket is lightly rubbed with minor wear to the edges. A near fine copy.

    The Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test established Tom Wolfe as one of the leading exponents of the New Journalism with his much-acclaimed literary non-fiction which became a touchstone of the late-'60s LSD-fueled hippie movement. The story chronicles the madcap adventures of author Ken Kesey and his Merry Pranksters as they experiment with the effects of LSD and other mind-expanding drugs, all while grooving to the acid rock sounds of the Grateful Dead in their day-glo school bus.
