Sometimes a Great Notion is the second novel by American author Ken Kesey, published in 1964. While One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest (1962) is more famous, many critics consider Sometimes a Great Notion Kesey's magnum opus. The story involves an Oregon family of gyppo loggers who cuts trees for a local mill in opposition to unionized workers who are on strike. Kesey took the title from the song "Goodnight, Irene", popularized by Lead Belly.
