Boston: Houghton Mifflin and Company, 1967 First edition, first printing. Publisher's black and gray cloths, lettered in black, decorated in blind; in the original white pictorial dust jacket designed by Joseph DelGaudio, lettered in black, pink and light brown. Near fine, with a very slight lean to the spine, a hint of soiling to the top edge, bright and fresh interior; unclipped dust jacket, with some light wear to the extremities, faint hint of light toning to the spine, a few minor scuffs to the otherwise fresh panels. A handsome copy. A Hall of Mirrors is a novel that examines the darker sides of the New Orleans political and social scenes of the 1960s. A highly personal novel, the text is partly based on the author's experiences living and working a census taker in New Orleans. Indeed, as Stone explains in his 1985 interview for The Paris Review, "I decided I knew a few meanings; I understood patterns in life. I figured, I can't sell this understanding, or smoke it, so I will write a novel." Notably, although this was the author's debut novel, Ivan Gold, in his New York Times Review, remarked that "It is almost impertinent to say that the 30-year-old author of this first novel has talent, and it is impertinent to try and relate his gifts to his age or publishing history. Stone, at this moment, is a remarkable writer.". 1st Edition.. Hard Cover. Near Fine/Dust Jacket Included. (Inventory #: RS002)
