    La mente es algo muy poderoso, pero hasta ahora muy poco es realmente comprendido. Sabía que, aunque los científicos han pasado años tratando de averiguar exactamente qué es realmente la "mente", cómo funciona, y qué son los pensamientos, aun no comprenden por completo lo que sucede en el cerebro, aparte de la estructura física que representa este órgano tan importante en el cuerpo humano.

    The mind is a powerful thing, yet very little is really understood. Even though scientists have spent years trying to figure out exactly how the mind works, what thoughts are, and what the “mind” really is, they still do not fully understand what goes on in the brain, apart from the physical structure that this very important organ in the human body presents. We rely on our minds so much.

    William Stoner bliver i slutningen af det 19. århundrede født ind i en fattig bondefamilie i Missouri, USA. Som ung går han på landbrugsskole, men drages af litteraturens verden. Han vender aldrig hjem til forældrenes gård og vælger i stedet det akademiske liv, hvor bøgerne og litteraturen forbliver hans faste holdepunkt - også når konflikter og skuffelser truer med at ødelægge hans tilværelse. Bogen blev første gang udgivet i 1965, siden genudgivet i 2006 i USA, hvorefter mange forlag verden over fik øjnene op for romanen. Den er nu en international bestseller. "Stoner" er et fascinerende, velskrevet og rørende portræt af en helt almindelig mand, hvis liv man ikke kan undgå at blive berørt af. Det er en roman om identitet, om livet, om de valg, vi træffer.
