The electric kool-aid acid test by Tom Wolfe ( Book )
84 editions published between 1968 and 2008 in 10 languages and held by 2,797 libraries worldwide
Tom Wolfe's much-discussed kaleidoscopic non-fiction novel chronicles the tale of novelist Ken Kesey and his band of Merry Pranksters. In the 1960s, Kesey led a group of psychedelic sympathizers around the country in a painted bus, presiding over LSD-induced "acid tests" all along the way. Long considered one of the greatest books about the history of the hippies, Wolfe's ability to research like a reporter and simultaneously evoke the hallucinogenic indulgence of the era ensures that this book, written in 1967, will live long in the counter-culture canon of American literature.

From teenage sexual manners and mores to fundamental changes in the way human beings now regard themselves thanks to the hot new fields of genetics and neuroscience; from his legendary profile of William Shawn, editor of The New Yorker (first published in 1965), to a remarkable portrait of Bob Noyce, the man who invented Silicon Valley, Tom Wolfe the master of reportage and satire returns in vintage form.

The pump house gang by Tom Wolfe ( Book )
40 editions published between 1968 and 1999 in 3 languages and held by 1,805 libraries worldwide
These essays revive the Sixties with all their energy, their weirdness, their freaky vision, and their lurid legacy for life in future decades. Along with the California surfing elite Pump House Gang, an astonishing pack of joyphiliacs and presbyphobes, Wolfe takes us among noble Sixties savages of all varieties, from La Jolla to London, all baying for new forms of status. Exposed are Ken Kesey and the Merry Pranksters, the rise of the psychedelic life style in America, and the founding of a bizarre new religion. In the midst of it all, many members of the redoubtable Pump House Gang become indoor sports, happily freaking out in pads rather than wiping out in the surf, but with the same unique Pump House Gang flair.
