New book day

20140126-185153.jpg

Yes, this is my year with Kerouac, but I admit, I’m gonna cheat on Kerouac for a few weeks and read Stoner by John Williams. I can’t remember where I heard about this novel, a friend must have recommended months ago, so I mentioned it to my mother and she gave it to me for Christmas.

I haven’t read one of those novels that you just dive right into, become a part of the characters, and literally can’t put down the book, for a while. I don’t know if this will be one of those novels or not, but I think Stoner is becoming a new classic and I’m eager to learn from Williams what makes a new American classic.

“And I realize that no matter where I am, whether in a little room full of thought, or in this endless universe of stars and mountains, it’s all in my mind. There’s no need for solitude. So love life for what it is…” -Alone On a Mountaintop, Lonesome Traveler

“After all this kind of fanfare, and even more, I came to a point where I needed solitude…”
