Publisher's Summary

Sherwood Anderson was cited by Hemingway, Fitzgerald, Cather, and others as a major influence in the writing of short stories. "Winesburg, Ohio" is a landmark work many of us encounter as students. Anderson, in many ways, is best experinced in audio. He believed stories were meant to be told, as they are in the stories themselves. These nine are his best: "Brothers", "The Door of the Trap", "The Dumb Man", "The Egg", "Motherhood", "The New Englander", "The Other Woman", "Seeds", and "War." He covers the great American themes of ambition, cheerfulness, big dreams that don't work out, feeling imprisoned by limitations one can't escape, and repressed sexuality - especially among women due to the code of conduct imposed upon them.
