Author Code: ASAX

Born: Sep. 13, 1876 - Camden, Ohio, USA

Anderson was primarily self-educated, having only attended school intermittently as a youth. In 1893, he moved to Chicago and went to business night school while working as a laborer. He joined the army and fought in Cuba during the Spanish-American War. After the war, he returned to Ohio and attended Wittenberg College in Springfield. For the next few years he worked at a variety of jobs around Ohio, married, and then left his wife to return to Chicago where he was employed in an advertising agency. He published his first novel, Windy McPherson's Son in 1916 and followed in 1917 with Marching Men. In 1919, he published perhaps his best work, Winesburg, Ohio, a collection of short stories about life in a fictitious midwestern town, which was very successful. In 1921, he received the first Dial award for his contribution to American literature. He travelled around Europe during the 1920's and settled in New Orleans when he returned. There, he shared an apartment with William Faulkner and published the novel, Dark Laughter (1925), which became a best-seller. He then moved to New York for a time before settling in Marion, Virginia where he purchased two loacl newspapers which he edited until 1929. Therefater, he toured the lecture circuit in America and worked for Today magazine covering labor conditions during the Depression. He died of peritonitis while on a goodwill tour of South and Central America. Anderson was a major influence on Faulkner and Hemingway, both of whom he encouraged in their writing. Anderson's other important works include Poor White (1920), The Triumphs of the Egg (1921), Hello Towns (1929), Beyond Desire (1932), Death in the Woods (1933), Kia Brandon (1936) and Home Town (1940).
