This is my second time participating in Book Beginnings on Friday. Here is what you are asked to do:
"William Stoner entered the University of Missouri as a freshman in the year 1910, at the age of nineteen."- by Stoner by John Edward Williams
This book caught my attention because all the big literary gurus have been praising it as an overlooked classic. Some have called it a modern day masterpiece. I am not far enough along to have a firm opinion, but what I have noticed is the writing distances the reader from the main character, Stoner.
