Sherwood Anderson

Winesburg, Ohio
  • Winesburg, Ohio


    'He was the father of my generation of American writers and the tradition of American writing' William Faulkner

    This timeless cycle of short stories lays bare the life of a small town in the American Midwest. The central character is George Willard, a young reporter on the WINESBURG EAGLE to whom, one by one, the town's inhabitants confide their hopes, their dreams, and their fears. The town of friendly but solitary people comes to life as Anderson's special talent exposes the emotional undercurrants that bind its people together.

Sherwood Anderson (1876-1941) published 23 books in his lifetime, including the acclaimed Winesburg, Ohio (Penguin Twentieth-Century Classics). Charles E. Modlin is Professor of English at Virginia Polytechnic and a trustee of the Sherwood Andersonliterary estate.
