A HALL OF MIRRORS, ROBERT STONE

"On the other side of the glass, the evening traffic spun by in ringed webs of light; it was raining again."

Stone's writing is wonderful not only for perfect, atmospheric snapshots like that: he gives you the look and feel of cities and irony and understated compassion, and the consequences of politics and commerce, and the tightening inner winding of quiet desperation getting louder.

It's important to add that A Hall of Mirrors also shows us the politics, business and psychology behind the scenes of a more-biased-than average news broadcaster, WUSA.
