Stoner - A Novel

(Pocket)
Beskrivning:

Colum McCann once called Stoner one of the great forgotten novels of the past century, but it seems it is forgotten no longer - in 2013 translations of Stoner began appearing on bestseller lists across Europe.

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
