A memoir of Midwestern life and culture from the author of Winesburg, Ohio

Praise for A Story Teller's Story---

"The American Portrait of the Artist."
-Charles Baxter

"Probably unequaled . . . for the austerity of moral courage and sincerity of
conviction. . . . A book which should be read by every intelligent American."
---New York Times

"In the field of literary autobiography, it stands practically alone in America."
---The Nation

"The voice of the soliloquist . . . amplifies the drama of A Story Teller's Story, as does the persistent theme of escape, from an America of fact and factories, marketing and manufacturing, to the borderless Ohios of imagination and creation."
---From the introduction by Thomas Lynch

About the Author:

Sherwood Anderson was born in Camden, Ohio in 1876. His first novel, Windy McPherson's Son, was published in 1916. His most important work, Winesburg, Ohio (1919), was published in 1919. He died of peritonitis in Panama on March 8, 1941. Thomas Lynch is the author of the essay collections The Undertaking: Life Studies from the Dismal Trade and Bodies in Motion and at Rest.

Review:

"The American Portrait of the Artist." - Charles Baxter "Probably unequaled... for the austerity of moral courage and sincerity of conviction.... A book which should be read by every intelligent American.", - The New York Times "The pilgrim's progress of a man at once a genuine artist... and a small-town, pool-playing, story-telling Midwesterner." - Sinclair Lewis "In the field of literary autobiography, it stands practically alone in America." - The Nation "The voice of the soliloquist... amplifies the drama of A Story Teller's Story, as does the persistent theme of escape, from an America of fact and factories, marketing and manufacturing, to the borderless Ohio's of imagination and creation. Part manifesto, part reverie, part romance, it is full of scene-sets, stage directions, vignettes, and 'moments'. An Epilogue replays what seems a never-ending struggle in the writer's life between 'the fanciful' and 'the physical', between the work one does for a living and the work one does to be alive...." - From the introduction by Thomas Lynch"
