"A fascinating hybrid . . . an excellent cultural history that will also stand, perhaps ironically, as a valuable companion to the very book that inspired [Christensen] to take drugs, Tom Wolfe's The Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test. --Publishers Weekly (starred review)
"Everybody is down on the 1960s except those of us who went up in smoke when they happened. The cultural cops will never forgive us. Mark Christensen takes you there, the good, bad, and ugly. . . . Kesey is the right door to open if you want to put down your cyber toys and leave the plane without one of those pesky parachutes." --Charles Bowden, author, Down by the River
"Mark Christensen with Acid Christ has brought Ken Kesey to vibrant life-provocative, colorful, engaging and personal . . . a front-row seat into the mind of a counter-culture icon." --Chuck Palahniuk, bestselling author, Fight Club and Tell All
"Engrossing and wildly lyrical, Acid Christ is a mind-blowing meditation on America's most enigmatic literary figure since Ernest Hemingway." --Nicholas Schou, author, Orange Sunshine
"A cool read about a mysterious icon . . . a literate page turner." --James Ellroy, bestselling author, Black Dahlia, LA Confidential, and American Tabloid
"Will prove to be the most amusing history book you've ever read!" --Grace Slick, former lead singer, The Jefferson Airplane, and Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee
"An admirable book . . . Christensen knows what he's talking about and writes with an edgy energy that often produces surprising revelations." --Oregonian/OregonLive.com
"Instead of a staid regurgitation of the life and times of Kesey-framed by colorful anecdotes by those who knew him best- author Mark Christensen becomes a willing participant, blending memoir with biography for a new genre: participatory biography." --San Francisco Chronicle: Out Loud
