This story of three young Americans whose lives intersect in New Orleans at the end of Mardi Gras in 1962 announced the arrival of a major new talent, who lived up to his early promise with the critically acclaimed novels Dog Soldiers (1974, National Book Award), A Flag for Sunrise (1981) and Outerbridge Reach (1992). “Stone’s position as a leading novelist has been well earned for the skill with which he imbues the novel of action with moral and political dimensions” (Stringer, 646).
A near-fine copy.
