Product description


‘I can think of few novels containing so much that is resonant and unforgettable, or that invite the reader to participate so fully and rewardingly. “The Stone Diaries” is a triumphant and important book and deserves a wide audience.’ Sunday Telegraph

‘Rapturous, sensitive and funny.’ Guardian

‘Carol Shields is an exceptionally sympathetic and involving novelist.’ Independent on Sunday

‘It is wonderful. A treat.’ Joanna Trollope


Winner of the Pulitzer Prize, the National Book Critics Circle Award and the Governor-General's Award, and short-listed for the Booker Prize. 'The Stone Diaries' is the story of one woman's life, a truly sensuous novel which reflects and illuminates the unsettled decades of our century. Repackaged as part of the Perennial fiction promotion. This is the story of Daisy Goodwill, from her birth on a kitchen floor in Manitoba, Canada, to her death in a Florida nursing home nearly ninety years later. Through Daisy's life, Shields reflects and illuminates the unsettled decades of our century in this rich and poignant novel.
