Winesburg, Ohio, a collection of stories set in a fictitious town in the 1890s, has long been considered Sherwood Anderson’s masterpiece. This groundbreaking work set the stage for a new era in writing, greatly influencing Ernest Hemingway, William Faulkner, and John Steinbeck, among many others. Anderson wrote simply, brilliantly crafting a work that dared to examine the darker impulses of human nature. Considered by many at the time of publication in 1919 to be a scandalous work, Winesburg, Ohio has nonetheless survived through the decades as one of the forerunners of modern fiction. Haunting and powerful, it draws listeners into the streets and houses of Winesburg—and into the darkly complex lives of each of Anderson’s unforgettable “grotesques.”

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.
