Five Smooth Stones: A Novel

Product Details

About the Author

Ann Fairbairn was best known for Five Smooth Stones, but also published two other books: a biography of New Orleans jazz clarinetist George Lewis, whose tours she managed, and a 1970 novel, That Man Cartwright. She lived for many years in New Orleans and died in Monterey, California, in 1972.


"A courageous novel ... David is a marvelously well-done character." --Library Journal "A long and richly realized novel ... Ann Fairbairn renders her scenes so skillfully and reveals her hero so fully that [his] qualities are transformed from desirable abstractions to a memorable identity... The numerous people characterized so clearly in this novel are 'mortal humans.' That is rare enough in any fiction dealing with one of the bone-deep issues of our time." -- The New York Times Book Review "No matter how large Ann Fairbairn's audience is, it won't be large enough ... Technically Miss Fairbairn is flawless ... David Champlin is a great tragic hero in a memorable story." --Denver Post "Every so often along comes the big book that defies categorization ... It has real size, stature ... Above all, it rings true ... You may put it down, but you can't forget it. You have to come back. Such is the case with Five Smooth Stones. " --Springfield Daily News
