|Personal Fact of Robert Stone|
Robert Stone is an author of several novels and short story collections. He is known for his powerful depiction of the despair and dark side of his characters who battle the challenges like forces of nature, politics and their own failings. For someone who had a hard childhood and grew up in a broken home, writing about the challenges of life seemed to the natural path to take.
His father abandoned the family when he was small and he was sent to an orphanage after his schizophrenic mother was institutionalized. As a young adult, he tried to seek refuge by drowning himself in alcohol and drugs, but that did not ease his troubled mind. He served for four years with the Navy and traveled to various remote places during his service.
During his navy stint, he witnessed war related violence in several areas and became preoccupied with the concept of politics and the senseless violence induced by politics all over America and other parts of the world. Inspired to write partly by his own difficult experiences, and partly by what he had witnessed as a navy man, he published his first novel A Hall of Mirrors which portrayed ring-wing racism. His novel received critical acclaim and thus began his career as a writer. He went on to produce several other novels, short story collections, and memoirs.
