STONER – Novel by John Edward Williams - Meeting Benches

After reading Stoner, I found myself comparing every book I read to it. I call it the Stoner Standard and consider this one of the great novels of the 20th Century. Plain, straightforward prose about an ordinary man, but the writing is brilliant.

Stoner - Beautifully written story of the (non-)life of a US academic. Such an ordinary life you wonder why the book is so good, yet such perfect prose and story-telling you cannot put it down...
