Originally published to glowing reviews in 1972, Dow Mossman's extraordinary debut is a sweeping coming-of-age tale that developed a passionate cult following. It recently inspired the award-winning documentary film Stone Reader, described by Peter Rainer of New Yorkmagazine as “a marvelous literary thriller that gets at the way books can stay with people forever.”Rendered with breathtaking artistry and emotional depth, The Stones of Summercaptures the beauty and pain of postwar America. Its vivid evocation of culture-void Iowa in the ’50s and ’60s reveals in layer after layer of richly observed detail the maturation—the very soul—of an artist. Its rediscovery was the catalyst for one filmmaker to confront his faith in the power of great literature to endure, and it can now be embraced by readers everywhere.… (mer)

This is the best novel I've ever read. ( )

ugh! i was working at barnes & noble when steve riggio decided to drag this back out of the grave it had been rightfully buried in. i remember when our store manager came over and told us it was a corporate initiative for everyone to "at least try to read it." we tried...we failed. and many of our colleagues around the country failed also. sometimes good books get overlooked their first go round, but not many. this one should have never been resurrected. long, long over-descriptive scenes, poor writing and that's just the first page ;-). i don't usually write reviews because i'm a pretty simple girl-i liked it, it didnt do it for me, i LOVED it! one word sums up dow mossman's (give credit where credit's due) stones of summer...ugh!

I made myself finish this book (with much cussing of Dawes Williams) because of I made a rule to finish a book I start and because there was promise in the first section of the book. Less promise in the 2nd section made me nervous. By the time I was well into the final section, I wanted so badly to break my own self-imposed rule. I stuck it out and found beauty were I could in his writing - which there was some. Unfortunately, the whole struggle for these 581 pages of oft-times random words, forces me to give this a low-rating. I could not wish it on anyone I liked. ( )

I heard so much about this book and I liked the cover, so I had to buy it. I was greatly disappointed!!!!!!! The book was long and boring. The main character was to self-centerd. I know that sounds strange,because a story is often told by the main character. I was just annoyed by him and towards the end started skimming pages instead of reading just to be finished. This book made a trip to Half Price Books and was sold. Maybe someone else will buy it and like it. ( )

When August came, thick as a dream of falling timbers, Dawes Williams and his mother would pick Simpson up at his office, and then they would all drive west, all evening, the sun before them dying like the insides of a stone melon, split and watery, halving with blood.
