Publisher's Summary

Winesburg, Ohio is Sherwood Anderson's masterpiece, a cycle of short stories concerning life in a small town at the end of the nineteenth century. In the perfectly imagined world of Winesburg, an archetypal small American town, Anderson reveals the hidden passions that turn ordinary lives into fonts of unforgettable emotions. Played out against a deceptively placid backdrop, Anderson's loosely connected stories coalesce, like chapters, into a powerful novel of love and loss.

the slog to end all slogs

This was an unbearably boring book filled with boring characters, and read in a near monotone manner. Little to no emotional resonance. I read this so you don't have to. You're welcome.

Great classic

Really enjoyed this story of small town America and the dreamers that inhabited it. Easy to see how this novel influenced other great writers. Lean and sharp prose. Concise description,with eloquent character development. Vignettes used to layer and build a cohesive world. Very good.

Overrated stories of loneliness

I had been under the impression that this was a great book. Wrong. No real plot. Just a collection of vignettes of people in and about a small Ohio town. Mostly tales of loneliness. An appropriate end to a bleak 2020.
