Editorial Reviews

Review

A signal junction in Anderson's career...to my mind one of the finest stories in our language. -- Jim Harrison

Anderson makes the trite beam with magical freshness, and the unlikely familiar and intimate. -- Amos Oz

Hemingway, Faulkner, Wolfe, Steinbeck, Coldwell, Saroyan, Henry Miller…each of these owes an unmistakable debt to Anderson. -- Malcolm Cowley

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Many of the great writers of the past century claim Sherwood Anderson as a major influence, including Hemmingway, Faulkner, Steinbeck and Henry Miller. Anderson's classic Winesburg, Ohio, a collection of short stories about a small town, is one of my favorite books. His masterful style is deceptively and disarmingly simple. In his stories, he develops vivid, deep characters and paints striking images without calling attention to the writing itself. Perhaps it's the time period in which he wrote, but I find most of his stories very nostalgic. This book covers a wider range of topics than Winesburg, and overall is a little more uneven, but it includes some fine stories nonetheless. Along with the title story, I thought "The Return," about a successful New York architect returning to his small hometown in eastern Ohio, is quite good. And the few curious stories about living in the southern mountains are quirky and interesting. Start with Winesburg, and if you love it as much as I did, try Death In The Woods.

As an Ohio resident, I have always enjoyed writers from this area. Anderson, being an Ohioan really explores the limited lives of small town midwesterners as few others can.
