“Robert Stone wrote 11 books over a career spanning nearly 50 years, including eight novels, two books of stories, and a memoir. His novels were finalists for the National Book Award five times, winning the award once, as well as being finalists for the Pulitzer Prize multiple times. His memoir focused on the 1960s and recounted, among other things, his friendship with Ken Kesey. Stone was noted for his dark humor and was often compared to Nathanael West, Graham Greene and Malcolm Lowry."
