Winesburg, Ohio (1919) is Sherwood Anderson's masterpiece, a cycle of short stories concerning life in a small town at the end of the nineteenth century.

At first I did not understand why this was such a classic, but I did understand many of the things after I read the commentary. Finally, I simply saw much humor in the stories. Which person was crazier! In the chapter, "Queer," when Elmer finished talking to Mook, Mook went to tell someone that Elmer was crazy, but he was telling his cows. Glad I read this.
