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. Readers had been so taken by its style, tone, narrative and engagement with human feelings that they felt the urge to tell others. John Williams died, aged 71, in 1994.

X

Last week bestselling Transworld author Joanne Harris was awarded an MBE for service to literature. Whilst presenting Joanne with the MBE at Buckingham Palace, the Queen voiced her concern about children being attracted to computer games and e-books rather than reading traditional materials. Although it is highly unusual for the monarch to openly express an opinion on such issues, it is clearly a problem close to her heart. Speaking after the investiture ceremony, Joanne, said of the Queen: ‘She asked me what I thought about e-books and computer games and said that she feared that children were playing with those more than they were reading books' ... ‘I told her that we start th...
