The stone diaries / Carol Shields ; introduction by Penelope Lively.

Shields, Carol, (author.). Lively, Penelope, 1933- (Added Author).


In celebration of the fifteenth anniversary of its original publication, Carol Shields's Pulitzer Prize winning novel is now available in a Penguin Classics Deluxe Edition. One of the most successful and acclaimed novels of our time, this fictionalized autobiography of Daisy Goodwill Flett is a subtle but affecting portrait of an everywoman reflecting on an unconventional life. What transforms this seemingly ordinary tale is the richness of Daisy's vividly described inner life -- from her earliest memories of her adoptive mother to her awareness of impending death.
