Sherwood Anderson

Sherwood Anderson I miss you (September 13, 1876 – March 8, 1941) was an American novelist and short story writer, known for subjective and self-revealing works.

Self-educated, he rose to become a successful copywriter and business owner in Cleveland and Elyria, Ohio.In 1912, Anderson had a nervous breakdown that led him to abandon his business and family to become a writer.

At the time, he moved to Chicago and was eventually married three additional times.His most enduring work is the short-story sequence Winesburg, Ohio, which launched his career.

Throughout the 1920s, Anderson published several short story collections, novels, memoirs, books of essays, and a book of poetry.Though his books sold reasonably well, Dark Laughter (1925), a novel inspired by Anderson's time in New Orleans during the 1920s, was his only bestseller.
