DescriptionWilliam 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. Stoner tells of the conflicts, defeats and victories of the human race that pass unrecorded by history, and reclaims the significance of an individual life. A reading experience like no other, itself a paean to the power of literature, it is a novel to be savoured.

Reviews for Stoner
These three hundred pages took me longer to read than I thought--it wasn't exactly a book that I couldn't put down--but I loved every page. The characters are slowly and thoughtfully developed, and Stoner is a flawed and compelling character who is hard not to adore. This is one I'll read over and over... by Amber
