The Triumph of the Egg is a fictional panorama of a great region of our country, unfolded by a writer who—to quote the New York Times—“depicts life in the Midwest as Dostoievski pictured the many colored life of Russia, with almost as wonderful a touch of genius, with a more concentrated and daring skill.”

This coveted 1921 collection is an example of what a book of stories can be when a writer of vision deals with the materials of American life.

About the Author

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.
