Steve Almond praised Stoner in The New York Times Magazine, writing, "I had never encountered a work so ruthless in its devotion to human truths and so tender in its execution."
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.
Most of the Harry Stoner novels are out of print, but read them if you can find them.

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...
