Read the greatest rediscovered classic of recent years 'A beautiful, sad, utterly convincing account of an entire life' Ian McEwan 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 'A terrific novel of echoing sadness' Julian Barnes

"Ich habe mich in ihn verliebt." Anna Gavalda ›Stoner‹ ist einer der großen vergessenen Romane der amerikanischen Literatur. John Williams erzählt das Leben eines Mannes, der, als Sohn armer Farmer geboren, schließlich seine Leidenschaft für Literatur entdeckt und Professor wird – es ist die Geschichte eines genügsamen Lebens, das wenig Spuren hinterließ. Ein Roman über die Freundschaft, die Ehe, ein Campus-Roman, ein Gesellschaftsroman, schließlich ein Roman über die Arbeit. Über die harte, erbarmungslose Arbeit auf den Farmen; über die Arbeit, die einem eine zerstörerische Ehe aufbürdet, über die Mühe, in einem vergifteten Haushalt mit geduldiger Einfühlung eine Tochter großzuziehen und an der Universität oft teilnahmslosen Studenten die Literatur nahebringen zu wollen. ›Stoner‹ ist kein Liebesroman, aber doch und vor allem ein Roman über die Liebe: über die Liebe zur Poesie, zur Literatur, und auch über die romantische Liebe. Es ist ein Roman darüber, was es heißt, ein Mensch zu sein.

Romance publicado em 1965, caído no esquecimento. Tal como o seu autor, John Williams – também ele um obscuro professor americano, de uma obscura universidade.Passados quase 50 anos, o mesmo amor à literatura que movia a personagem principal levou a que uma escritora, Anna Gavalda, traduzisse o livro perdido. Outras edições se seguiram, em vários países da Europa. E em 2013, quando os leitores da livraria britânica Waterstones foram chamados a eleger o melhor livro do ano, escolheram uma relíquia. Julian Barnes, Ian McEwan, Bret Easton Ellis, entre muitos outros escritores, juntaram-se ao coro e resgataram a obra, repetindo por outras palavras a síntese do jornalista Bryan Appleyard: "É o melhor romance que ninguém leu". Porque é que um romance tão emocionalmente exigente renasce das cinzas e se torna num espontâneo sucesso comercial nas mais diferentes latitudes? A resposta está no livro. Na era da híper comunicação, Stoner devolve-nos o sentido de intimidade, deixa-nos a sós com aquele homem tristonho, de vida apagada. Fechamos a porta, partilhamos com ele a devoção à literatura, revemo-nos nos seus fracassos; sabendo que todo o desapontamento e solidão são relativos – se tivermos um livro a que nos agarrar."Stoner não passa de um romance sobre um tipo que vai para a universidade e se torna professor. Mas é também uma das coisas mais fascinantes que já vi na vida." - Tom Hanks John Edward Williams (1922-1994) autor, editor e professor, escreveu quatro romances: Nothing but The Night (1948), Butcher’s Crossing (1960), Stoner (1965) e Augustus (1972), o último dos quais recebeu o National Book Award. Neto de agricultores, foi criado no Texas e trabalhou em rádios e jornais, até se alistar na força aérea em 1942. Esteve destacado na Índia e na Birmânia até ao fim da Segunda Guerra mundial, período em que escreveu o seu primeiro romance. Estudou na Universidade de Denver e concluiu o doutoramento em Literatura Inglesa na Universidade de Missouri. Regressaria a Denver, onde conciliou a actividade académica com a literatura, até se retirar em 1985. Morreu em 1994, deixando um quinto romance inacabado.

Mr. Stoner is bad, and it seems his son is turning out just the same. Masked and dressed all in gray, Stoner's Boy moves like a ghost up and down the river, stealing and causing mischief. Seckatary Hawkins and his club have crossed this dangerous lad, and (to make matters worse) Briggen and the Pelham gang across the river won't leave the ruthless thief alone: They know that he's hidden his treasure hoard somewhere in his cliff cave lair, and they're dead set on having it for themselves. Still, it doesn't seem that anyone can stand up to this clever foe -- except maybe another newcomer in town, sharpshooter Robby Hood, who is the only person that Stoner's Boy seems to fear. Before Nancy Drew and the Hardy Boys, Seckatary Hawkins and his friends from the Fair and Square Club were solving mysteries and thrilling readers with tales of adventure, loyalty, and courage. One of the biggest fans of the series was author Harper Lee, and Stoner's Boy makes a prominent appearance in her masterpiece To Kill a Mockingbird. Now, the tales of the Fair and Square Club's encounters with the river renegade known as the Gray Ghost are back in print and ready to ignite the imaginations of devoted fans and new readers of all ages.

When Stoner was published in 1965, the novel sold only a couple of thousand copies before disappearing with hardly a trace. Yet John Williams’s quietly powerful tale of a Midwestern college professor, William Stoner, whose life becomes a parable of solitude and anguish eventually found an admiring audience in America and especially in Europe. The New York Times called Stoner “a perfect novel,” and a host of writers and critics, including Colum McCann, Julian Barnes, Bret Easton Ellis, Ian McEwan, Emma Straub, Ruth Rendell, C. P. Snow, and Irving Howe, praised its artistry. The New Yorker deemed it “a masterly portrait of a truly virtuous and dedicated man.” The Man Who Wrote the Perfect Novel traces the life of Stoner’s author, John Williams. Acclaimed biographer Charles J. Shields follows the whole arc of Williams’s life, which in many ways paralleled that of his titular character, from their shared working-class backgrounds to their undistinguished careers in the halls of academia. Shields vividly recounts Williams’s development as an author, whose other works include the novels Butcher’s Crossing and Augustus (for the latter, Williams shared the 1972 National Book Award). Shields also reveals the astonishing afterlife of Stoner, which garnered new fans with each American reissue, and then became a bestseller all over Europe after Dutch publisher Lebowski brought out a translation in 2013. Since then, Stoner has been published in twenty-one countries and has sold over a million copies.

Arcydzieło literatury światowej! Powieść na tyle uniwersalna, że stała się światowym bestsellerem 20 lat po śmierci autora! „Ta książka zasługuje na miano klasyki”. The Guardian William Stoner urodził się u schyłku XIX wieku w ubogiej rodzinie z Missouri. Wysłany do stanowego uniwersytetu, by studiować agronomię, miast tego zakochuje się w angielskiej literaturze i wsiąka w akademickie życie, tak odmienne od dotychczasowej jałowości. Jednak to tylko chwilowy uśmiech losu. Z biegiem lat Stoner doświadcza szeregu rozczarowań: małżeństwo z „odpowiednią” familią odgradza go od własnych rodziców, jego kariera staje się dokuczliwa, żona i córka oddalają się od niego, a doświadczenie ożywczej miłości kończy się groźbą skandalu. Zagłębiający się w sobie profesor Stoner odkrywa stoicki spokój przodków i konfrontuje się z konieczną samotnością. Błyskotliwa i głęboko poruszająca powieść Johna Williamsa to dzieło znakomitego stanu umysłu. William Stoner wyłania się z niego nie tylko jako archetyp Amerykanina, ale także jako nieprawdopodobnie egzystencjalny bohater.

The name of David Stoner (1794-1826) deserves to be ranked alongside those of Robert Murray McCheyne, David Brainerd and Henry Martyn. Like them, he died at a relatively young age; and like them, his life was marked by a profound hunger and thirst for God and intense passion for souls. Stoner was saved at twelve years of age and from that point until his untimely death twenty years later his soul was continually on full stretch for God. This book tells the story of his short but amazing life: his godly upgringing, his radical conversion, his call to preach, his amazing success as a Wesleyan Methodist preacher, his patience in tribulation and sickness, and his glorious departure to be with Christ forever. Many pages are devoted to extracts from his personal diary which give an amazing glimpse into the heart of one whose desires were all aflame for more of God. Oswald J. Smith, in his soul-stirring book, The Revival We Need, wrote the following: "Have been reading the diary of David Stoner. How I thank God for it! He is another Brainerd. Have been much helped, but how ashamed and humble I feel as I read it! Oh, how he thirsted and searched after God! How he agonized and travailed! And he died at 32." You, too can be much helped in your spiritual life as you study the life of this youthful saint of a past generation. "Be instant and constant in prayer. Study, books, eloquence, fine sermons are all nothing without prayer. Prayer brings the Spirit, the life, the power." -David Stoner
