“Winesburg, Ohio: Drink and Death” by Sherwood Anderson

Not the most cheerful topics. I’ve received feedback from a few of my listeners that these stories are very grim. Yes, I guess they can seem that way. To that, I quote @sparksofher (Khatija Khan) “Today, when we sugar coat fictions so pink that the black reality hurts like pointed straw in our heels…” Can it be, that modern fiction is so “pink” that when we hear stories too close to reality, it makes us truly uncomfortable? That raw reality is painful? If that’s the case, it only deepens my conviction to put these stories out there. My goal has always been to rattle you, enlighten you, touch you; To pierce your armor and open your heart. If these stories do that. I’m glad.
