Being an oddball from Ohio myself, I should have really enjoyed this book. I could relate to aspects of each character. However, Sherwood Anderson's deadpan narration failed to hold my attention as I read it. It was evident why he didn't have much commercial success after Winesburg Ohio was published.

An intriguing piece of working class fiction by Anderson. Even better than his novel Kit Brandon.

Good listening for English major or fans of the era of rather depressing stories.

A great book of short vignettes about various residents in a small Ohio town. Each character becomes so very real as the narrator describes them in details that only a keen observer would note.

It's a series of portraits of the people in fictional Winesburg, so it's not a plot-driven book, but rather one that invokes a sense of place & time.

Winesburg, Ohio is considered by many to be Sherwood Anderson's best book. It's a collection of short stores about the people in Winesburg, Ohio, who confide their hopes, dreams, fear, etc, to George Willard, a young reporter.
