    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.

    A Story Tellers Story
    Sherwood Anderson was a 20th century American writer of short stories. Anderson grew up in Ohio and after college became a copywriter in Chicago. He is most famous for his collection of interrelated short stories, Winesburg Ohio, which he began writing in 1919. Anderson had three marriages, suffered a nervous breakdown and died in Panama at the age of 64. The cause of death was peritonitis after he accidentally swallowed a piece of a toothpick embedded in a martini olive at a party. A Story Teller's Story is the semi-autobiographical story of a writer's journey through his imaginary world.
