Poor white: a novel by Sherwood Anderson( Book )
114 editions published between 1920 and 2015 in 6 languages and held by 1,851 libraries worldwide
"In a small town in Ohio, a dreamy, rather stupid 'poor white' boy suddenly becomes a rich and famous inventor. This classic novel of Americana, first published in 1920, tells the story of the power unleashed by that happenstance-- a force that overnight dotted a vast valley with cities, built a network of industry, made quick men rich and fearful men poor. In telling of the 'poor white's' love, it shows how the forces that twist men made the boy's story a wild and terrible one, bigger than the mere story of one person."--P. [4] of cover

Winesburg, Ohio : a group of tales of Ohio small town life by Sherwood Anderson( Book )
112 editions published between 1919 and 2015 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,555 libraries worldwide
This book reveals the secret life of a seemingly placid Midwestern town in the early years of the 20th century. A series of intertwined vignettes, the book looks at the unexpressed desires and dreams of the townspeople as they bare their souls to a young reporter, George Willard. The characters, whom the author refers to as "grotesques," suffer under the repression of a society they feel cannot understand them. Each longs to make a connection to something or someone outside themselves, but can only, at best, make stunted attempts to reach out. Each chapter portrays a defining moment for one of the townspeople, whether it is to be loved, to be accepted or to find God. The young reporter is the blank slate upon which each character projects his or her inchoate hopes and dreams. The result is a picture of a small-town America where white picket fences both bind and separate its lovely inhabitants

His father had died while he was yet in school and had left him a modest fortune, upon the income of which he lived with his mother. He did no work and was enormously proud of the fact."--Publisher's website

Certain things last : the selected short stories of Sherwood Anderson by Sherwood Anderson( Book )
6 editions published between 1992 and 1995 in English and held by 778 libraries worldwide
Until now there has never been a selection of Anderson's best short fiction. Certain Things Last is the first one-volume edition of Anderson's stories. But what makes this book truly remarkable is that five of Anderson's very best stories appear in print here for the first time. They are: "Certain Things Last," "Fred," "The Red Dog," "Mrs. Wife," and "The Masterpiece." The discovery of these new stories makes Certain Things Last an unprecedented publishing event. The short story, not the novel or autobiography, was the form in which Sherwood Anderson excelled. And the American short story probably owes more to Sherwood Anderson than to any other American writer. It was Anderson who wrested short fiction from the upbeat conventionality of the popular magazines of the 1920s and '30s and molded it to express the isolation of individual people

The triumph of the egg; a book of impressions from American life in tales and poems by Sherwood Anderson( Book )
58 editions published between 1920 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 396 libraries worldwide
"1921. Anderson, whose prose style, derived from everyday speech, influenced American short story writing between World Wars I and II. He directed the American short story away from the neatly plotted tales of O. Henry and his imitators. The stories in The Triumph of the Egg are characterized by a casual development, complexity of motivation, and an interest in psychological process. Anderson also made his name as a leading naturalistic writer with his masterwork, Winesburg, Ohio, a picture of life in a typical small Midwestern town, as seen through the eyes of its inhabitants. Contents: The Dumb Man; I Want to Know Why; Seeds; The Other Woman; The Egg; Unlighted Lamps; Senility; The Man in the Brown Coat; Brothers; The Door of the Trap; The New Englander; War; Motherhood; Out of Nowhere into Nothing; and The Man with the Trumpet."--Publisher's website
