    Marching Men
    "Nothing quite like it has ever been done in America. . . . It is so vivid, so full of insight, so shiningly life-like and glowing, that the book is lifted into a category all its own," wrote H.L. Mencken, speaking of Anderson's "Winesburg, Ohio," Anderson, he said, is "America's Most Distinctive Novelist." "Marching Men," Anderson's 1917 second novel, is a tale taht focuses on the plight of the working man in an industrial society. Like all of Anderson's tales, it's an important social commentary, and not to be overlooked.

Visit us online at www.1stWorldLibrary.ORG - - There is a story. - I cannot tell it. - I have no words. The story is almost forgotten but sometimes I remember. The story concerns three men in a house in a street. If I could say the words I would sing the story. I would whisper it into the ears of women, of mothers. I would run through the streets saying it over and over. My tongue would be torn loose - it would rattle against my teeth. The three men are in a room in the house. One is young and dandified. He continually laughs. There is a second man who has a long white beard. He is consumed with doubt but occasionally his doubt leaves him and he sleeps.

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 ofA 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
