Certain Things Last. The Selected Short Stories. Sherwood Anderson.

Certain Things Last. The Selected Short Stories.

New York: 4 Walls & 8 Windows, 1992. First Printing of the First Edition. A Fine tight unread copy in a Fine bright unclipped dust jacket. This first one-volume selection of Anderson's best stories brings together 30 short works of fiction including five that appear here in print for the first time. While Anderson aspired to be a successful novelist, his greatest talent resided in the short story form. He masterfully dealt with subjects of adolescent initiation, the alienation of the artist, the breakdown of human relationships, and the loss of love. Anderson and his use of the oral tradition are most remembered for their influential effect on the next generation of young writers; his classic cycle of stories, "Winesburg, Ohio" greatly influenced the writings of William Faulkner, Ernest Hemingway, John Steinbeck, and Thomas Wolfe.
