Widely regarded as a modern classic, The Stone Diaries is a fictionalized autobiography chronicling the life of Daisy Goodwill Flett, a seemingly ordinary woman born in Canada in 1905. Beautifully written, yet deeply compassionate, it follows Daisy’s life through marriage, motherhood and widowhood as she ages with the century. A subtle but affective portrait of an everywoman reflecting on an unconventional life, this multi-award winning story deals with everyday issues of existence with an extraordinary vibrancy and irresistible quality.Tweet
