Description

Robert Stone delivers 'Prime Green: Remembering the Sixties.' Robert Stone has written some of the most iconic American fiction of the last three decades. The legacy of the 'burnt-out '60s' - Vietnam, drugs, the failure of counter-culture dreams - has informed much of his best work, not least of all his National Book Award-winning novel 'Dog Soldiers.' In 'Prime Green,' his first ever book-length work of non-fiction, Stone offers a candid memoir that recalls his own extraordinary experiences during the most turbulent, yet magical, decade in our history. In 1958, Stone is in the Navy, circumnavigating the globe on a transport ship. Ten years later, he would encounter a different kind of military engagement, as he witnessed the disastrous invasion of Laos as a correspondent in Vietnam.

n between, he would alight in New York amid the burgeoning art scene on the Lower East Side, in New Orleans where jazz and poetry fused in Beat-inspired clubs, and in California, where he joined the Age of Psychedelia, experimenting with LSD along with Ken Kesey's Merry Pranksters and an up-and-coming band called The Grateful Dead. Stone's personal take on the Sixties as he lived it is indelible, capturing those heady times with both hindsight and insight.
