The Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test

By Tom Wolfe
Tom Wolfe's The Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test ushered in an era of New Journalism, "An American classic" (Newsweek) that defined a generation. "An astonishing book" (The New York Times Book Review) and an unflinching portrait of Ken Kesey, his Merry Pranksters, LSD, and the 1960s.

"An amazing book...A book that definitely gives Wolfe the edge on the non-fiction novel".

-- The Village Voice

"Tom Wolfe is a groove and a gas. Everyone should send him money and other fine things. Hats off to Tom Wolfe!"--Terry Southern ""The Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test "is not simply the best book on the hippies, it is the essential book . . . the pushing, ballooning heart of the matter . . . Vibrating dazzle!"--"The New York Times ""Some consider Mailer our greatest journalist; my candidate is Wolfe."--Studs Terkel, "Book Week ""A Day-Glo book, illuminating, merry, surreal!"--"The Washington Post ""Electrifying."--"San Francisco Chronicle ""An amazing book . . . A book that definitely gives Wolfe the edge on the nonfiction novel."--"The Village Voice ""Among journalists, Wolfe is a genuine poet; what makes him so good is his ability to get inside, to not merely describe (although he is a superb reporter), but to get under the skin of a phenomenon and transmit its metabolic rhythm."--"Newsweek"
