Stoner Book Review:

Discover an American masterpiece. This unassuming story about the life of a quiet English professor has earned the admiration of readers all over the globe. 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 instead falls in love with English literature and 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: marriage into a “proper” family estranges him from his parents; his career is stymied; his wife and daughter turn coldly away from him; a transforming experience of new love ends under threat of scandal. Driven ever deeper within himself, Stoner rediscovers the stoic silence of his forebears and confronts an essential solitude. John Williams’s luminous and deeply moving novel is a work of quiet perfection. William Stoner emerges from it not only as an archetypal American, but as an unlikely existential hero, standing, like a figure in a painting by Edward Hopper, in stark relief against an unforgiving world.

Forty-eight years after its first, quiet publication in the US, Stoner is finally finding the wide and devoted readership it deserves. Have you read it yet? William Stoner enters the University of Missouri at nineteen to study agriculture. A seminar on English literature changes his life, and he never returns to work on his father's farm. Stoner becomes a teacher. He marries the wrong woman. His life is quiet, and after his death his colleagues remember him rarely. Yet with truthfulness, compassion and intense power, this novel uncovers a story of universal value. Stoner tells of the conflicts, defeats and victories of the human race that pass unrecorded by history, and reclaims the significance of an individual life. A reading experience like no other, itself a paean to the power of literature, it is a novel to be savoured.

Stoner's Boy Book Review:

Mr. Stoner is bad, and it seems his son is turning out just the same. Masked and dressed all in gray, Stoner's Boy moves like a ghost up and down the river, stealing and causing mischief. Seckatary Hawkins and his club have crossed this dangerous lad, and (to make matters worse) Briggen and the Pelham gang across the river won't leave the ruthless thief alone: They know that he's hidden his treasure hoard somewhere in his cliff cave lair, and they're dead set on having it for themselves. Still, it doesn't seem that anyone can stand up to this clever foe -- except maybe another newcomer in town, sharpshooter Robby Hood, who is the only person that Stoner's Boy seems to fear. Before Nancy Drew and the Hardy Boys, Seckatary Hawkins and his friends from the Fair and Square Club were solving mysteries and thrilling readers with tales of adventure, loyalty, and courage. One of the biggest fans of the series was author Harper Lee, and Stoner's Boy makes a prominent appearance in her masterpiece To Kill a Mockingbird. Now, the tales of the Fair and Square Club's encounters with the river renegade known as the Gray Ghost are back in print and ready to ignite the imaginations of devoted fans and new readers of all ages.

Stoner & Spaz Book Review:

A funny, in-your-face novel starring an unlikely teenage pair - a sheltered cinemaphile with cerebral palsy and the tattooed, straight-talking stoner who steals his heart. For sixteen-year-old Ben Bancroft - a kid with cerebral palsy, no parents, and an overprotective grandmother - the closest thing to happiness is hunkering alone in the back of the Rialto Theatre watching Bride of Frankenstein for the umpteenth time. Of course he waits for the lights to dim before making an entrance, so that his own lurching down the aisle doesn’t look like an ad for Monster Week. The last person he wants to run into is drugged-up Colleen Minou, resplendent in ripped tights, neon miniskirt, and an impressive array of tattoos. But when Colleen climbs into the seat beside him and rests a woozy head on his shoulder, Ben has that unmistakable feeling that his life is about to change. With unsparing humor and a keen flair for dialogue, Ron Koertge captures the rare repartee between two lonely teenagers on opposite sides of the social divide. It’s the tale of a self-deprecating protagonist who learns that kindred spirits can be found for the looking - and that the incentive to follow your passion can be set into motion by something as simple as a human touch.

The Stoner Detective Book Review:

It's the summer of 1981, and the streets of Hollywood are a riot of sex and drugs and rock 'n' roll, the glory days of the L.A. punk scene. At 21, Sean Stoner is young to be working at Krapp Productions. After receiving the ultimate insult from his boss, Sean conspires to get himself fired and sets up shop as a private detective. His first client is easy enough: a gorgeous woman searching for a lost husband who doesn't exist. But Sean is in trouble when he finds his nympho punk secretary with a broken neck—stark naked on top of his desk. Things quickly get worse: the CIA moves in next door ... Sean's old Pinto explodes ... Nazi skinheads try to kill him with baseball bats ... and a strange disease breaks out in the gay community. Meanwhile, Sean investigates the mysterious death of his own father, who died twenty years ago in a bizarre double murder—in the very office where the CIA is conducting its top-secret operation. When Sean's screenwriter friend, Conrad, is found with his brains blown out, Sean refuses to believe it was suicide. Then Hillary appears, Conrad's hauntingly beautiful sister, and Sean and Hillary join forces to uncover Conrad's killer.

Now Playing: Stoner & Spaz II Book Review:

Quick repartee. Unsparing wit. Insight, poignancy, and spot-on characters. Welcome the much-awaited sequel to the acclaimed STONER & SPAZ. (Ages 14 and up) Beautiful but troubled Colleen Minou is the only girl who ever looked at Ben Bancroft as more than a spaz-- more than just that kid with cerebral palsy. Yet the more time Ben spends with her, the more glaring their differences appear. Is what Ben feels for Colleen actual affection, or more like gratitude? Then there’s Amy (aka A.J.), who is everything Colleen isn’t, and everything Ben’s grandma wants for him: clean-cut and upper-class, academically driven, just as obsessed with filmmaking as Ben is. But what does A.J. see when she looks at Ben? CP? Or the person behind the twisted body? In Ron Koertge’s sharp, darkly humorous follow-up to the award-winning Stoner & Spaz, Ben tries to come to terms with his confused feelings toward A.J. and his inimitable connection to Colleen, who is sometimes out of it, sometimes into him, and always exhilarating.

The Stoner Philosophy Book Review:

The Stoner Philosophy concerns spirituality, politics, and unanswered questions in the universe. The book is a condensed synopsis about where the world is heading if we continue on the path we’re going. It embodies a whole new look on the color spectrum, what we define as "elements," and our understanding of the human mind. I believe my views on politics, science, and the business world are something new to society, including a whole new look into magic, while also explaining exactly what magic is. I take a look into Greek and Roman philosophy, as well as New Age thinking. My book will hopefully give the common man a better perspective on spirituality and science in a few dozen easy-to-read pages. It provides interesting conversation topics for discussion groups, or just something to talk about with friends. The Stoner Philosophy is for the curious.
