“Don’t Say It”: Advice from Ken Kesey

Ken Kesey's December 1986 response to a questionnaire posed by writer James L. Harmon, who wrote to influential writers, actors, musicians, and other well-known individuals, requesting they answer the prompt, “If you could offer the young people of today one piece of advice, what would it be?”

Harmon accumulated ‘advice,’ he notes in his introduction, for over a decade. His collection was eventually published in 2002’s Take Their Advice: Letters to the Next Generation from People Who Know a Thing or Two, in which Kesey's piece appears.
