Revisiting The Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test by Thomas Wolfe

Its been 42 years (yikes) since I last read and savored Thomas Wolfe’s The Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test. The release of the recent documentary film, Magic Trip has reawakened my energies in the literary journalism work.

On impulse I went online to the Barnes & Noble Website and reserved a copy of the trade paperback edition. I like that Barnes & Noble via the Internet identified that their superstore around the corner from my house had a copy in stock, located it and held it in reserve for me at the cashiers area. This was all accomplished via Barnes & Noble’s Web application which sent me a follow-up SMS text message indicating it would be held for 3 days. It made it effortless to pick it up and use my Barnes & Noble Member card. A lot has changed in 42 years in buying a paperback book.
