Publisher's Description

The classic story collection by a great American master

Sherwood Anderson’s unforgettable story cycle has long been considered one of the finest works of American literature. The central character is George Willard, a young
artist coming of age in a quiet town in the heart of the Midwest, but his story is no more extraordinary than those of friends and neighbors such as Kate Swift, a lonely schoolteacher whose beauty inspires lust and confusion; Wing Biddlebaum, a recluse whose restless hands are the source of both his new name and the terrible secret that led him to abandon the old one; and Doctor Reefy, who hides his personal suffering by pouring it onto scraps of paper.
 
With its uncompromising realism and unique narrative structure—twenty-two short tales linked by their setting and by a large cast of recurring characters—Winesburg, Ohio inspired an entire generation of writers, including William Faulkner, Ernest Hemingway, and F. Scott Fitzgerald, and forever changed the depiction of small-town life in popular American culture.

This ebook has been professionally proofread to ensure accuracy and readability on all devices.

 

Author Bio

Sherwood Anderson (1876­–1941) worked in advertising and owned a successful paint supply company before he suffered a nervous breakdown and abandoned his business career and his family to devote himself full time to writing. His groundbreaking story cycle, Winesburg, Ohio, is widely regarded as one of the greatest works of twentieth-century literature. Anderson, according to William Faulkner, "was the father of my generation of American writers."

Editorial Reviews

"A work of love, an attempt to break down the walls that divide one person from another, and also, in its own fashion, a celebration of small-town life in the lost days of goodwill and innocence." —Malcolm Cowley

"He was the father of my generation of American writers." —William Faulkner
