Direct, unadorned, and insightful, Stoner by John Williams nears perfection in some readers' eyes. Shields shows the author was far from perfect: Williams never knew his father, married four times, and was a chain-smoking alcoholic. Shields superbly channels Williams's writing style to depict a flawed man who through industry and dedication became a sublime artist. ~ Reviewed by Mike Hare
