Publisher's Summary

William Stoner bliver i slutningen af det 19. århundrede født ind i en fattig bondefamilie i Missouri, USA. Som ung går han på landbrugsskole, men drages af litteraturens verden. Han vender aldrig hjem til forældrenes gård og vælger i stedet det akademiske liv, hvor bøgerne og litteraturen forbliver hans faste holdepunkt - også når konflikter og skuffelser truer med at ødelægge hans tilværelse.

Bogen blev første gang udgivet i 1965, siden genudgivet i 2006 i USA, hvorefter mange forlag verden over fik øjnene op for romanen. Den er nu en international bestseller. "Stoner" er et fascinerende, velskrevet og rørende portræt af en helt almindelig mand, hvis liv man ikke kan undgå at blive berørt af. Det er en roman om identitet, om livet, om de valg, vi træffer.
