STONE, Oliver.


Item Number: 115105

New York: St. Martin's Press, 1997.

First edition of Stone’s first novel, a fictionalized account of his harrowing experiences in Vietnam. Octavo, original cloth. Inscribed by the author on the title page, “To Joe, Oliver Stone.” Fine in a fine dust jacket. Jacket design by Steve Sonder. Jacket illustration by Sergio Premoli.

Based on Stone's experiences in Vietnam, A Child's Night Dream is the story of a young man's harrowing journey across three continents and between several states of consciousness. Like Dean Moriarty in On the Road, the fictional Oliver Stone is alienated from the stultifying American nation in which he lives, and, abandoning his parents and his Ivy League education for Vietnam, begins an epic voyage that leads him through the killing fields of Vietnam, the Merchant Marine, an unceremonious return to American soil, and a descent into madness south of the border in Mexico.
