    Winesburg, Ohio is a little-known masterpiece that forever changed the course of American storytelling. At the center of this collection of stories stands George Willard, an earnest young reporter for the Winesburg Eagle who sets out to gather the town’s daily news. He ends up discovering the town’s deepest secrets as one by one, the townsfolk confide their hopes, dreams, and fears to the reporter. In their recollections of first loves and last rites, of sprawling farms and winding country roads, the town rises vividly - and poignantly - to life.

    Sherwood Anderson beskrev selv "Winesburg, Ohio" som "halvt selvstaendige fortaellinger, halvt roman". I dag er den kendt som et af de mest banebrydende vaerker i moderne amerikansk litteratur, og den har haft en enorm indflydelse på den amerikanske novelle. Bogen udspiller sig i den førindustrielle amerikanske lille by Winesburg, og omkring den centrale hovedperson, Winesburgs eneste journalist, den unge George Willard.

    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.

I denne roman skildrer Anderson sin opfattelse af de sortes kontakt til det naturlige, uhaemmede liv, som står i staerk kontrast til, hvad han betragter som sine hvide "artsfaellers" degeneration.
