Stoner: A Novel by John Williams

The greatest rediscovered classic of recent years, Stoner is now a literary legend – ‘a beautiful, sad, utterly convincing account of an entire life’ Ian McEwan. Have you read it yet? William Stoner enters the University of Missouri at nineteen to study agriculture. A seminar on English literature changes his life, and he never returns to work on his father’s farm. Stoner becomes a teacher. He marries the wrong woman. His life is quiet, and after his death his colleagues remember him rarely. Yet with truthfulness, compassion and intense power, this novel uncovers a story of universal value – of the conflicts, defeats and victories of the human race that pass unrecorded by history – and in doing so reclaims the significance of an individual life. ‘A brilliant, beautiful, inexorably sad, wise and elegant novel’ Nick Hornby
