    Description

    Grateful Dead-Related Tom Wolfe Signed First Edition of The Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test (Farrar, Straus and Giroux, 1968). Hardcover, with dust jacket, signed in green felt-tip ink on the title page by the author. According to its Wikipedia page, "'The Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test' is remembered as an accurate and 'essential' book depicting the roots and growth of the hippie movement. Additionally, the book is remembered because of its usage of New Journalism techniques. It was widely read and attitudes towards its themes were polarized. Some saw the book as a testament to the downfall of American youth while others read the book as gospel, seeing Ken Kesey [the protagonist] as a sort of Christ figure."
