Book Description

›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.

Have just got this book out to read it for book club and it's in German! - Obviously didn't read the small print but it was the first option that came up so I didn't for one minute expect it not to be in English...

I am sure it is a great book but I had not realised the text was in German; if only we could change it.
