With Winesburg, Ohio, Sherwood Anderson charted a new direction in American fiction, evoking with lyrical simplicity quiet moments of epiphany in the lives of ordinary men and women.

"When he calls himself a 'poor scribbler' don't believe him. He is not a poor scribbler...he is a very great writer." (Ernest Hemingway)
The narration of this book is wretched. Just listening to the voices of the narrators makes me sick. It is truly horrible to listen to, whether or not you're trying to study the book.
Agree with reviewer below who lambastes the narrators. Especially bad is the male voice doing the introduction and several subsequent sections. He doesn't know if he's Irish or South Carolinian or from Down East Maine, forget about Ohio. A mishmash of summer stock readers overall. This book deserves better.
but becomes stranger and oddly less interesting towards the end of the book. I guess even though the writing was fine I just cared less about the characters.
