Banned Books Week: One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest

The book and the subsequent movie deserve equal praise. One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest follows a patient in an infirmary as he rebels against an oppressive institution. The book by Ken Kesey raises questions about authority, society and the individuals. My favorite line out of the book, "But at least I tried...." McMurphy (the rebellious main character)states after an attempt to throw a shower control panel out the window and fails.
