No responses to “Reading Kesey’s Papers by Cai Emmons”

    In the mid 70s I worked with those boxes of Kesey papers (there were five boxes then, some still redolent with chicken poop from being stored in the bus–that bus). I edited the book, Kesey, (still available on Amazon) and worked with Kesey on the selections for the book. My novel, The Greening of Ben Brown, was a finalist for the 2005 Ken Kesey Award of the Oregon Literary Arts Awards. I was so allergic to the mold growing on the papers I had to go outside each hour, wash my hands and sit face to the sun like a sunflower. Then back to the boxes to mine for the considerable gold I found there. I hope the papers are now mold-proofed and properly stored.
