A young man’s life and character are examined through a series of interconnected stories about the residents of the small town of Winesburg, Ohio. Through his childhood, to his coming of age, to his decision to leave the town in which he was born, George Willard finds his life indelibly marked by the shared experiences of his friends and neighbours.
Believed to be based on author Sherwood Anderson’s own experiences growing up in a small town, Winesburg, Ohio is today recognized as one of the first works of modernist literature.
