Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The Stone Diaries is the story of one woman's life; a truly sensuous novel that reflects and illuminates the unsettled decades of our century.

Born in 1905, Daisy Goodwill drifts through the chapters of childhood, marriage, widowhood, remarriage, motherhood and old age. Bewildered by her inability to understand her own role, Daisy attempts to find a way to tell her own story within a novel that is itself about the limitations of autobiography.

About the Author

Carol Shields has won many national and international awards for her novels and short stories. Larry’s Party won the Orange Prize and was shortlisted for the Giller Prize. The Stone Diaries won the Pulitzer Prize, the Governor General’s Award and the National Book Critics Circle Award, and was shortlisted for the Booker Prize. Ms. Shields has also written eleven other novels and short story collections, three books of poetry, numerous plays and a biography of Jane Austen. She is also co-editor, with Marjorie Anderson, of Dropped Threads: What We Aren’t Told. Her forthcoming new novel, Unless, reawakens the voice of Reta Winters, from her story “The Scarf,” included in Dressing Up for the Carnival. Carol Shields lives in Victoria, BC.
