Heads and Tales

On April 26 the Heads and Tales book group enjoyed a lively discussion of the iconic novel “One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest” by Ken Kesey. The discourse ranged from consideration of the impact the book had on treatment of psychiatric patients to the group’s perception of the character, motives and impact of the two central protagonists(antagonists) Randle McMurphy and Nurse Ratchet. All members concluded this was a worthwhile, engaging and provocative read, though most felt it started slowly but gained pace throughout with a cataclysmic ending.
