Quite possibly the original novel of stories work, Sherwood Anderson's novel debuted over 100 years ago. Each solitary character gets a chapter; the chapters in turn are lightly woven together around a shared small town and a visiting reporter. I read this book in high school and think about often many years later.
- Lynn Lobash, Readers Services

Rather than an idyllic portrayal of american small town life, these connected stories are about psychological isolation, loneliness, and frustration brought about by small town mores. Anderson possesses brilliant insight into humor thought and emotion and expresses his vision with beautiful prose.

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.
