This morning I finished the best book that I’ve ever read—Ken Kesey’s “Sometimes A Great Notion.” This afternoon, Kesey died at the age of 66. Kesey was a brilliant writer and I found it so refreshing to read the work of someone, who in his mid-twenties was able to write with the maturity of a sage—especially when so many of today’s writers in their thirties and forties read like they’re 19.
