More Success for Author John Williams

We are excited to announce that John Williams’s Stoner has been selected as Waterstones’s Book of the Year in the UK.

Now an international bestseller in several countries, this once overlooked classic has been championed by Ian McEwan, Julian Barnes, and Colum McCann, among many others.

NYRB Classics reissued Stoner in 2006 and we are thrilled that the rest of the world has noticed this extraordinary novel.

Williams’s highly acclaimed Butcher’s Crossing, also in the NYRB Classics series, was just published in Holland and is already on the Dutch bestseller list.
