Published two years after the innovative, influential 1919 masterpiece Winesburg, Ohio, this collection of short stories solidified the author's reputation as a major American writer.

Klassiker der US-Moderne Mit «Winesburg, Ohio» revolutionierte Sherwood Anderson die moderne amerikanische Short Story. Lakonischer war das Leben seiner Landsleute nie erzählt worden. In der vorliegenden Neuübersetzung, der ersten seit über 50 Jahren, lässt sich dieser wegweisende US-Klassiker nun endlich wiederentdecken. Wing Biddlebaum verlor durch ein fatales Missverständnis seine Stelle als Lehrer und mit ihr seine Seelenruhe. Alice Hindman wartet auch elf Jahre nach deren Verschwinden noch verzweifelt auf die Rückkehr ihrer Jugendliebe. Der Arzt Mr Reefy schreibt seit dem Tod seiner Frau Gedankensplitter auf kleine Zettel – und wirft sie weg. Selbst die Existenz des jungen Lokalreporters George Willard, der neugierig all diese Schicksale sammelt, ist nicht frei von tragischen Verstrickungen. Schrullige, einsame Charaktere bevölkern das Städtchen Winesburg in Ohio, einen Ort auf der literarischen Landkarte, dem Autoren bis heute ihre Reverenz erweisen.

"Slavery is terrible for men, but it is far more terrible for women," Harriet Jacobs states plainly in this riveting account of her life as a slave, and then sets out to recount, in chilling detail, the particular horrors for women caught in that terrible snare. Published in 1861 under the pseudonym Linda Brent, *Incidents* was the first account of slavery to explore the sexual abuse female slaves endured... in Jacobs' case, a catalog of harassment she suffered while working in the home of a doctor known to have sold children he'd fathered with slave women. Long believed to have been written by a white author as a fictional novel, *Incidents in the Life of a Slave Girl* rings with a ghastly truth that still has the power to haunt modern readers.
