The stones of summer by Dow Mossman( Book )

This stream-of-consciousness novel is the story of Dawes Williams, who grows up in Iowa and enters the world of the '60s as a hell-raising counterculture figure. In the process, he grows as a writer. A film about Dow Mossman, "Stone Reader," was released in 2002

In 1972, Mark Moskowitz, then 18, read John Seelye's review of The Stones of Summer in The New York Times Book Review and immediately bought a copy. He bogged down less than a hundred pages in and gave up, finally giving the yellowed paperback another pass in 1998. On that reading, the book struck a chord, and he saw why it was so rapturously received. Looking for more, Moskowitz did a search for Mossman works produced between 1972 and 1998--and found nothing. So he set out to find Mossman, pursuing countless dead ends, talking to critics, agents, book designers, and editors, none of whom had answers. A commercial producer by trade, Moskowitz grabbed a 16-mm camera to capture his hunt for posterity, and at its best, this documentary hints at the powerful author/audience bond that can transcend race, class, region, and time itself

Dawes Williams is not just an ordinary boy growing up in the culture-void Iowa corn country. He is a little bit of a poet, a little bit of a genius--and a little bit mad. At six he already understands more about life than the tough grandfather whom he idolizes. At eighteen he has been irrevocably labeled as the town eccentric, although he manages to stave off his bizarre inclinations and to make it, more or less, as one of the guys. But at twenty-one his threatening dark impulses start to surge to the surface and his battle for sanity and survival begins in earnest
