    First Rate Historical Novel

    I'm in the research phase of a possible book project about a very successful inventor who lived in my community . Poor White was recommended to me by a publisher who thought it might serve as a good example of how to go about writing a book of this type. While the author's writing style was somewhat rambling and a bit abstract for my tastes, it was an enjoyable read. I found it useful in terms of helping me conceptualize the framework of a book I would like to write.

    Important document of America's changing landscape

    Sherwood Anderson captures America's change from agrarian to industrial, with insightful and poetic writing. This is a perfect companion to Anderson's best-known work (Winesburg, Ohio) as well as to the many non-fiction books on the same topic (The Machine in the Garden, etc.).
