The Further Inquiry by Ken Kesey (Viking Books 1990)(818). This is a photographic record of the Merry Pranksters’ historic cross-country trip from California to New York in 1964 in a psychedelic school bus to visit Timothy Leary. The trip was a trip, Leary was a bummer. My rating: 7/10, finished 1994.
A very interesting look into the Merry Pranksters and their journey across the United States in the bus Further. Written as a play taking place in a court room, The Further Inquiry examines Neal Cassady through character witnesses from his past.

This is a fun book, with more of a scrapbook feel. My favorite part is the little picture of Cassiday on the corner of each page which operate like a flip book. The jerky action is exactly as described in On the Road.
