Overview

An American novelist and short story writer. His most enduring work is the short story sequence Winesburg, Ohio. Writers he has influenced include Ernest Hemingway, William Faulkner, John Steinbeck, and Thomas Wolfe.
He is most famous for the collection of interrelated short stories, which were published in 1919, known as Winesburg, Ohio. He claimed that "Hands", the opening story, was the first "real" story he ever wrote.[5] Although his short stories were very successful, Anderson felt the need to write novels. In 1920, he published Poor White, which was rather successful.

Windy McPherson's Son

Winesburg, Ohio -
The work is structured around the life of protagonist George Willard, from the time he was a child to his growing independence and ultimate abandonment of Winesburg as a young man. It is set in the fictional town of Winesburg, Ohio (not to be confused with the actual Winesburg), which is based loosely on the author's childhood memories of Clyde, Ohio.

Windy McPherson's Son is the story of Sam McPherson's rise in the world of business and search for emotional enlightenment in later life.
