Stoner - 50th Anniversary Edition

Author(s): John Williams; John McGahern (Introduction by)


Discover an American masterpiece. This unassuming story about the life of a quiet English professor has earned the admiration of readers all over the globe.


The critic Morris Dickstein has said that John Williams's Stoner "is something much rarer than a great novel - it is a perfect novel," and in the last decade this austere and deeply moving tale of a Midwestern college professor has been embraced by readers all over the world. To commemorate the fiftieth anniversary of the publication of Stoner, NYRB Classics offers a special hardback edition of the book that also includes a previously unpublished correspondence between John Williams and his agent about its writing and publication.
