Reviews by Sri Rahm

Winesburg, Ohio

by Sherwood Anderson

A masterpiece of complex psychological vignettes giving you a peek at people living in small-town Midwest USA (supposedly set in Clyde, Ohio), their petty thinking, their insecurities, their dreams, their loneliness and their generosity. Each little story in this volume confirms Anderson's place as (probably) the greatest short story writer in America. Anderson has supposedly influenced many American writers including Ernest Hemingway, William Faulkner, Thomas Wolfe, John Steinbeck, Erskine Caldwell and others.

Even though it is a collection of short stories, there are several characters that keep reappearing, giving it the flavor of a longer novel.
