In Fun with Problems, Robert Stone demonstrates once again that he is "one of our greatest living writers" (Los Angeles Times). The pieces in this new volume vary greatly in length - some are almost novellas, others no more than a page - but all share the signature blend of longing, violence, black humor, sex, and drugs that has helped Stone illuminate the dark corners of the human soul.

Here are the trademarks of Stone's greatest fiction: the American embroiled in Third World corruption, the diplomats and convert operatives, the journalists, idealists, and opportunists.

Never before has Stone probed so intensely the psychological depths of one man's mind. What he finds there defies expectations.
