Robert Stone's name looms big in the book world, both for the size of his following and the quality of his work. His plots are big too, with action, suspense, intrigue, drugs, exotic settings, and more. And his issues are big: faith, family, honor and morality, sanity, delusions, personal salvation.
His novels include A Hall of Mirrors (1967), winner of the William Faulkner Foundation Award for a first novel; Dog Soldiers (1974), a National Book Award winner; Flag for Sunrise (1981), winner of the Los Angeles Times Book Prize and the PEN/Faulkner Award; Children of Light (1986); Outerbridge Reach (1992); and Damascus Gate (1998). He also has a book of short stories and a novella, Bear and His Daughter (1997). Other awards include Guggenheim and National Endowment for the Arts fellowships, an award from the American Academy and Institute of Arts and Letters, the John Dos Passos Prize for Literature, and a grant from the National Institute of Arts and Letters.
As if this weren't enough, he gives a great reading. What a way to end the '00-'01 season!
David Means is winner of the 2001 Los Angeles Times Book Prize for his story collection, Assorted Fire Events.
