Sherwood Anderson’s most enduring work, Winesburg, Ohio, is considered one of earliest works of modernist literature. The sequence of short stories centers on the life of George Willard and those who live in the rural, pre-industrial town. “Adventure,” a short story within the novel, tells the tale of Alice Hindman, a twenty-something girl, and her continued devotion to her former lover Ned Currie, who left her to seek his fortune in Chicago. A story of self-discovery and heartache, “Adventure” is representative of why Winesburg, Ohio is considered one of the best novels of the twentieth century.

About the Author
Author Sherwood Anderson

Sherwood Anderson (1876–1941) was born in Camden, Ohio. Largely self-educated, he worked at various trades while writing fiction in his spare time. For several years he worked as a copywriter in Chicago where he became part of the Chicago literary renaissance. As an author, he strongly influenced American short-story writing, and his best-known book, Winesburg, Ohio (1919), brought him recognition as a leader in the revolt against established literary traditions.
