内容简介

《有时冒出了一个伟大的念头》(Sometimes a Great Notion) 于1964 年出版,书名源自民歌“有时冒出了一个伟大的念头/要跳入河中漂流” ,讲的是俄勒冈州某小镇两个独立谋生的伐木工人的故事,他们信奉的人生准则是“永不屈服”(`Never Give An Inch),虽然不如 《飞越布谷鸟巢》那样具有商业意义上的成功,可却被评论家普遍看好, 也是他本人最满意的作品,由名演员亨利•芳达和保尔 • 纽曼担任主角。

Book description:

This is the Kesey novel that nobody read after One Flew Over the Cuckoos Nest stole all its thunder. Although it was filmed with a great cast (Henry Fonda, Paul Newman) it never gained the reputation that its inferior sibling achieved.

This is, quite simply, one of the great classics of the 20th century. Its pace and moody evocation of the American North West are stunning. The collision between the traditional and the modern, the past and the present make riveting, enthralling reading.

The Stamper family are loggers, rough, hardmen and women who care for no ones opinion but their own. They are fighting the union, the neighbours, the town, their whole world. Their motto of "never give an inch" was the title of the film of the book. Into the strike-breaking start of the book comes the dope-smoking, college educated half brother, the prodigal son. His arrival triggers a tidal wave of events that spiral gradually out of control until everything that has been permanent before is now threatened.
