"The year was 1976. I was going to visit Kesey with my pal photographer Clyde Keller. Clyde was unique. In 1968, while barely more than a teenager, he sent off photos to Robert Kennedy Presidential campaign headquarters in Washington and soon found himself in the company of RFK advisor Pierre Salinger, taking photos of Kennedy as he campaigned throughout Oregon. Keller created what Kesey liked best: art made magic. I never met anybody who could compress creativity into such a vital, efficient package. Clyde’s camera was a silent machine gun, he shot photos like movie directors shot film and we were soon to be off to record “Kesey World” for posterity." Text by Mark Christensen
"Clyde shipped my package (Ken kesey/Bill Murray "Double Take") just a couple hours after I ordered it. I explained to him that this was a gift for my husband's bday and he made sure it was sent priority to get here on time. The print was packaged with such care and was perfect when I received it. His work is really impressive!" Dayna Hickman, Akron, OH - August 5, 2014
"Mr. Keller's photographs document America at the very highest level of photographic arts. To be in the moment of the Robert Kennedy, "Whistle Stop," though the lens of Mr. Keller is to connect with history in a beautiful way. The print was exquisite, the service and responsiveness of Mr. Keller truly outstanding. Mr. Keller's archive is arguably the best value available on the web for the serious photography lover\collector." Washington DC Photographer, William Boling - February 25, 2009
"The year was 1976. I was going to visit Kesey with my pal photographer Clyde Keller. Clyde was unique... Keller created what Kesey liked best: art made magic. I never met anybody who could compress creativity into such a vital, efficient package. Clyde’s camera was a silent machine gun, he shot photos like movie directors shot film and we were soon to be off to record “Kesey World” for posterity."

PUBLISHER'S WEEKLY - Starred Review
"A fascinating hybrid.... An excellent cultural history that will also stand, perhaps ironically, as a valuable companion to [The Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test].... Christensen focuses on the larger-than-life Kesey, "60s icon and enthusiastic proponent of illegal substances using his own experiences to bring the period to exubersnt life."
“Mark Christensen with Acid Christ has brought Ken Kesey to vibrant life—provocative, colorful, engaging and personal. What a pleasure to have a front-row seat into the mind of such a counter-culture icon.” —CHUCK PALAHNIUK, bestselling author, FIGHT CLUB and TELL ALL
“Contains not only interesting stuff I didn’t know about Kesey, but other information about the era—what led up to and followed it…[It] will prove to be the most amusing history book you’ve ever read!” —GRACE SLICK
