"THE GREATEST NOVEL YOU'VE NEVER HEARD OF"

WILLIAMS, John. Stoner. New York: Viking, (1965). Octavo, original half yellow cloth, original dust jacket. $3000.

First edition of Williams' long-neglected masterpiece.

Famously dubbed "the greatest novel you've never heard of" by the New Yorker, Williams' critically praised novel "offers an overview of a whole life, unfurling the existence of one William Stoner from his birth in the late 19th-century to his death in the mid-20th… a fleeting glimpse of eternity from within the purview of the everyday" (McKenna, Art, Literature and Culture, 190-96). Stoner achieved a cult following that finally blossomed into unlikely bestseller status in a number of countries after its reissue (2006) and translation into French.

Book fine, dust jacket with a bit of light edge-wear, two closed tears at head of slightly sunned spine, very good.
