Winesburg, Ohio


Winesburg, Ohio by Sherwood Anderson available for only €5

Sherwood Anderson’s timeless cycle of short stories lays bare the life of the small fictional town of Winesburg Ohio in the American Midwest. The central character is George Willard, a young reporter on the Winesburg Eagle to whom, one by one, the town’s inhabitants confide their hopes, their dreams, and their fears.

The town of friendly but solitary people comes to life as Anderson’s special talent exposes the emotional undercurrents that bind its people together. Before George leaves the community, we have learned much about his mother Elizabeth, his friend Helen White, his teacher Kate Swift and other Winesburg residents — the lonely, sensitive Dr. Reefy, the tormented Rev. Charles Hartman and the enigmatic Wing Biddlebaum among them. The interconnecting stories are subtly portrayed to expose the young writer’s coming of age, searching for love, yearning for a less stifling world.

Featuring a new introduction by Sara Wheeler, this is a collection of short stories not to be missed! This copy is available at Charlie Byrne’s for the bargain price of €5! Be sure to pop into the shop or contact us to reserve a copy today!
