Sherwood Anderson University of Illinois Press, 1993 Library of Congress PS3501.N4W49 1993 | Dewey Decimal 813.52
Sherwood Anderson's first and most autobiographical novel and the only one set in Illinois, Windy McPherson's Son received uniformly high praise from literary critics when it was first published. It tells the story of an Iowa newsboy who fights his way to fortune in Chicago, then questions the meaning of his success. It was republished in 1922 with a different ending, which appears as an appendix in this edition.
