Small Town America Passions and Fears

This is a very modern feeling read for a book published in 1919 . The prose are clear and frank exposing a few quintessentially small town American characters through their inner passions and fears in many tightly coupled short stories. There is very little story or action, but growing and changing characters dealing with life, sexuality, loneliness, expectations, and fears inherent in small town American life. I laughed many times, but did not come close to crying, although there is a darkness in many of the stories.

The audio is excellent, with a clear, non-judgmental forthrightness narration, that adds to the subtle dark humor of the stories.

Winesburg, Ohio

A book that looks at the interior lives of characters versus the events. The author explores and displays some unusual personalities with a small town as the backdrop. It kept my interest and is well-done. However, it is not my list to re-read.
