"Questa stanza è come la mia anima: sporca e disordinata". L'anima di Arthur Maxley è opaca, stretta nell'incertezza della giovane età e in una biografia familiare amara, dove la protezione dei genitori si è polverizzata quando era ancora un ragazzino. Arthur spende la giornata estiva che fa da cornice a questo romanzo breve a San Francisco: qui ci sono le feste di Max Evartz, dove si beve troppo, e l'amico Stafford Lord, sempre in ritardo e terribilmente lamentoso, un giovane viziato da sogni irrealizzabili. Ma non sono le frequentazioni quanto i pensieri ad affollare la mente di Arthur, frammenti di ricordi di un'infanzia che ha al centro una voragine, una madre perduta senza sapere quale sia stata la causa e un padre, uomo d'affari sempre in giro per i continenti, il quale proprio in questo giorno è in città e propone al figlio un incontro. Ed è allora che le parole non si trovano e quelle che vengono pronunciate sono troppo poche e deboli, in un dialogo che non concede nulla al rapporto tra un genitore e un figlio. È a partire da Luisant's, un club immerso nelle strade della metropoli, che consuma la notte e la delusione, un cocktail dopo l'altro con una donna che diventa compagna di solitudini e seduzioni. Nulla, solo la notte è l'esordio letterario di John Williams, che, a soli vent'anni, raccontò la giornata di un giovane borghese della California, scrivendo forsennatamente nelle lunghe ore vuote che caratterizzarono la sua esperienza militare in India e Birmania nel secondo conflitto mondiale. Al rientro negli Stati Uniti riuscì, un anno prima di laurearsi, a far stampare il suo primo romanzo, queste prime pagine della carriera di un grande scrittore, osservatore lucido e sensibile della condizione umana, narratore puntuale delle sue fragilità.

John Edward Williams was born on August 29, 1922, in Clarksville, Texas, near the Red River east of Paris, Texas and brought up in Texas. His grandparents were farmers; his stepfather was a janitor in a post office. After flunking out of junior college and holding various positions with newspapers and radio stations in the Southwest, Williams enlisted in the USAAF early in 1942, spending two and a halfa years as a sergeant in India and Burma. Several years after the war, Williams enrolled in the University of Denver, where he received his B.A. in 1949 and an M.A. in 1950. During this period, his first novel, Nothing But the Night, was published (1948), and his first volume of poems, The Broken Landscape, appeared the following year. In the fall of 1950, Williams went to the University of Missouri, where he taught and received a Ph.D. in 1954. In the fall of 1955, Williams took over the directorship of the creative writing program at the University of Denver, where he taught for more than 30 years. Williams's second novel, Butcher's Crossing, was published by Macmillan in 1960, followed by English Renaissance Poetry, an anthology published in 1963 by Doubleday which he edited and for which he wrote the introduction. His second book of poems, The Necessary Lie, appeared in 1965 and was published by Verb Publications. In 1965 he became editor of University of Denver Quarterly (later Denver Quarterly) until 1970. In 1965, Williams's third novel, Stoner, was published by Viking Press. It has been recently been re-issued by The New York Review of Books. His fourth novel, Augustus, was published by Viking Press in 1973 and won the prestigious National Book Award in 1973 and remains in print.

The critic Morris Dickstein has noted that, while Butcher's Crossing, Stoner, and Augustus are "strikingly different in subject," they "show a similar narrative arc: a young man's initiation, vicious male rivalries, subtler tensions between men and women, fathers and daughters, and finally a bleak sense of disappointment, even futility." Dickstein called Stoner, in particular, "something rarer than a great novel -- it is a perfect novel, so well told and beautifully written, so deeply moving, it takes your breath away."

After retiring from the University of Denver in 1986, Williams moved with his wife, Nancy, to Fayetteville, Arkansas, where he resided until he died of respiratory failure on March 3, 1994. A fifth novel, The Sleep of Reason, was left unfinished at the time of his death.
