Sherwood Anderson’s Winesburg, Ohio
With Variant Readings and Annotations
In 1919 a middle-aged Chicago advertising writer from Ohio, a failure as a businessman, husband, and father, published a small yellow book of short stories intended to “reform” American literature.
First published in 1964 and now reissued with a new introduction by Anita Jarczok, Collages showcases Nin’s dreamlike and introspective style and psychological acuity. Seen by some as linked vignettes and some as a novel, the book is a mood piece that resists categorization.
Players, Teams, and Stadium Ghosts
Bob Hunter on Sports
Players, Teams, and Stadium Ghosts collects more than 130 sports columns and stories, written over three decades, to offer a smorgasbord of nostalgia and discovery—including the origin stories of some of today’s biggest names in sports—for fans in Ohio and beyond.
Good-bye, Son and Other Stories
Lewis’ only collection of short fiction was first published in 1946, but remains as quietly haunting today as it was then. Set in small communities of the upper Midwest and northern California in the ’30s and ’40s, these midcentury gems focus on the quiet cycles connecting youth and age, despair and hope, life and death.
Not Out of Hate
A Novel of Burma
