Stoner – John Williams

stoner-414787Stoner by John Williams is a wonderful novel about the life of John Stoner, an undistinguished teacher at an American university. Set in the period 1890-1955, it’s a sad story – Stoner always seems to make the wrong choices – but so beautifully written. The novel was written in 1965, one of only four novels by the author, who was also a university lecturer.
For the past three days I’ve enjoyed Stoner’s company and I will miss him.

Have your say!
