First published in 1972 to glowing reviews, Dow Mossman's coming-of-age story in America's great midwest tracks the maturation of aspiring novelist Dawes Williams. This epic "great American novel" draws from Salinger, Heller, and Faulkner in its stream-of-consciousness style and remarkable characters. Chronicling 1949 through 1968, Dawes reflects upon America's evolution from the end of WWII to the hippie revolution. Narrator Scott Shina portrays dozens of characters with dexterity and talent. Light on plot but heavy on metaphysical insight, THE STONES OF SUMMER transports readers with true emotion. R.O. (c) AudioFile 2004, Portland, Maine [Published: DEC 04/ JAN 05]
