Summary
Anderson profoundly changed the American short story, transforming it from light, popular entertainment into literature of the highest quality. His art belonged as much to an oral as a written tradition, and, as this collection shows, the best of his stories echo the language and the pace of a man talking to his friends. They explore with penetrating compassion the isolation of the individual and capture the emotional undercurrents hidden beneath ordinary events.

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "American. 1876-1941. Anderson's simple style influenced a generation of early-twentieth-century U.S. fiction writers. Winesburg, Ohio is a compassionate cycle of short stories about lonely, frustrated individuals in a fictitious midwestern town."
