Rheinhardt, a disc jockey and failed musician, rolls into New Orleans in the aftermath of Mardi Gras looking for work and another chance in life. What he finds is a woman named Geraldine who is physically and psychically damaged by the men in her past, and a job that involves him with a right-wing political movement. Sparked by the group's 'Patriotic Revival', the city erupts into a riot of madness, destruction and death that is a test of all Rheinhardt's fast-talking survival skills. Peopled with civil-rights activists, fanatic Christians, corrupt politicians and demented Hollywood stars, A Hall of Mirrors vividly depicts the dark side of America that erupted in the 1960s. 'Stone writes like a bird, like an angel, like a circus barker, like a con man, like someone so high on pot that he is scraping his shoes on the stars' Wallace Stegner 'Stone is perhaps America's most powerful chronicler of post-Vietnam angst, a part-time college professor whose novels are an apocalyptic mix of adventure, politics, religion, violence and death ...Stone writes fiction full of lurid hangovers from Vietnam and yet manages to give it an urgency which is completely contemporary' Time Out
