Stoner voted Waterstones' Book of the Year

Stoner - John Williams

Stoner by John Williams has won the Waterstones' Book of the Year.  Published in 1965 it went out of print the following year. The novel tells the story of William Stoner, an unappreciated husband, father and literary scholar. "Stoner's colleagues, who held him in no particular esteem when he was alive, speak of him rarely now," the first page says. Its new-found popularity is a triumph for old-fashioned recommendation by word of mouth.
