Summary
Ken Kesey’s story of life in a state mental hospital is a classic of American literature. One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest is one of the most electrifying, most admired novels of our time. Set in the bleak confines of a state mental hospital, it’s the story of a titanic battle of wills between two unforgetable characters. On one side is Big Nurse, who rules her ward with iron discipline. On the other is Randle Patrick McMurphy, a lustful, brawling, life-loving new inmate who refuses to knuckle under to Big Nurse’s soul-destoying methods. In the end, McMurphy pays the ultimate price for his defiance—but not before his rebellious spirit has shown Chief Bromden the way to reclaim his own future
Summary
McMurphy, a criminal who feigns insanity, is admitted to a mental hospital where he challenges the autocratic authority of the head nurse.
