Summary
The central character is George Willard, a young artist coming of age in a quiet town in the heart of the Midwest, but his story is no more extraordinary than those of friends and neighbors such as Kate Swift, a lonely schoolteacher whose beauty inspires lust and confusion; Wing Biddlebaum, a recluse whose restless hands are the source of both his new name and the terrible secret that led him to abandon the old one; and Doctor Reefy, who hides his personal suffering by pouring it onto scraps of paper.

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."
