Dr. Duane Simolke examines Sherwood Anderson's Winesburg, Ohio, as it relates to Gertrude Stein, gender roles, failed communication, and the machine in the garden. Simolke also looks at Anderson's concerns about mechanization, loneliness, and the mistreatment of many people.
"This work should be required reading in any college course involving the art and craft of short-story writing as well as in courses on Sherwood Anderson, himself." -Ronald L. Donaghe, author of Common Sons.
Simolke also wrote The Acorn Stories, a story cycle in the tradition of Winesburg, Ohio.
BIOGRAPHY I wrote The Acorn Stories, Degranon: A Science Fiction Adventure, Sons of Taldra: A Science Fiction Adventure, Holding Me Together, and New Readings of Winesburg, Ohio. I also edited and co-wrote the spin-off The Acorn Gathering: Writers Uniting Against Cancer.
Three of my books have received StoneWall Society Pride in the Arts Awards, and one received an AllBooks Reviewers Choice Award.
I love books, movies, and TV shows, especially with gay and/or scifi elements. I also love rock and dance music, 1970s-the present (and some 1960s).
Writing published in nightFire, Mesquite, Caprock Sun, Midwest Poetry Review, International Journal on World Peace, and many other publications.
