Our next Members’ Book Club is on Monday 9 October, 5.30pm: Stoner by John Williams (1965).
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.
A beautiful, sad, utterly convincing account of an entire life… I’m amazed a novel this good escaped general attention for so long. Ian McEwan
Copies are available for free download on our eBooks platform.
