As the title implies, Dementia Americana is about the craziness of America. In what he describes as "the most personal writing I have ever done," Keith Maillard meditates upon the implications for private life of the two most bizarre wars of our time: the Gulf War and the Vietnam War. Working within traditional closed forms, but stretching them to their limits, Maillard recreates the effect of the past and the persistence of dream in the public arena.

Keith Maillard was born in Wheeling, West Virginia, attended a military high school and West Virginia University. Having read On the Road at an impressionable age, he spent several years hitch-hiking throughout North America. In Boston, he was active in the movement against the Vietnam war; he emigrated to Canada in 1970 and became a Canadian citizen in 1976.
