Winesburg, Ohio is a little-known masterpiece that forever changed the course of American storytelling. Bittersweet and richly insightful, it reveals Sherwood Anderson's special talent for taking the small moments of life and transforming them into timeless folk tales-a talent that inspired a generation of writers including William Faulkner, Ernest Hemingway, and John Steinbeck. 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. With polished prose and fresh imagery, Winesburg, Ohio is an American classic that celebrates small town life in the lost days of innocence and good will.

"Sherwood Anderson has been considered the inspiration for American storytelling. Narrator George Guidall perfectly presents the multitude of sketches that make up the town and novel. Diverse generations, class and educational levels, as well as male and female voices, are all realistically handled. It seems likely that the author would have read his work in much the same way that Guidall does. Because this is from a time of different reading and writing styles, the audio version enhances what may be dull reading for a contemporary audience. S.G.B. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine"
