Stoner

John Williams’s luminous and deeply moving novel is a work of quiet perfection.
William Stoner is born at the end of the nineteenth century into a dirt-poor Missouri farming family. Sent to the state university to study agronomy, he finally embraces a scholar’s life, so different from the hardscrabble existence he has known. And yet as the years pass, Stoner encounters a succession of disappointments. This book cover shows just that; a modest and voluntary acceptance of the happening of life.

Stoner was announced Best Book Cover in 2012
