Winesburg, Ohio begins with a sort of prologue, in which an old writer imagines all the people he has known as "grotesques," warped in their pursuits of various truths. A series of stories... More > ensues, each concerned with a single resident of Winesburg. The first, entitled "Hands," describes Wing Biddlebaum, a recluse with remarkable hands that he cannot control, who has fled from false accusations of molesting a boy in another town.

It is set in the fictional town of Winesburg, Ohio, which is based loosely on the author's childhood memories of Clyde, Ohio. The book consists of twenty-two stories, with the first story, The Book of the Grotesque, serving as an introduction.

Winesburg, Ohio was received well by critics despite some reservations about its moral tone and unconventional storytelling.< Less

Town of Shadows (paperback) By Lindsay Stern
Paperback: $12.00 (excl. taxes)
Ships in 3-5 business days
Fiction. "That the fresh and haunting new voice Lindsay Stern exercises in TOWN OF SHADOWS is difficult to classify ought to serve only to make it impossible to ignore. Rife with arch urgency,... More > brief density, and fruitful disregard for traditional genre bounds, Stern's debut is an important addition to the recent rejuvenation of the novella form. Through its razor-sharp technique, translucent diction, and elliptical vignette structure, TOWN OF SHADOWS peels layer from layer to reveal a complex, perspicacious author who is unafraid to trouble the water where poetry and prose mingle. Stern's youth and precocity are certainly striking, but don't let them dupe you: here is a young Lydia Davis or Anne Carson unspooling only the beginning of a corpus all her own. Lindsay Stern defines the term 'one to watch.'"—Laura Goode< Less
