Anderson, Sherwood: The Triumph of the Egg & Other Stories. 17 Aug 07
Published in 1921, just after Poor White, The Triumph of the Egg & Other Stories is a wonderful collection. This is the collection that got me hooked on Anderson in the first place.
We had a reading assignment in HS English of one of his stories. The teacher did not care much for Anderson and let us all know that very plainly. Then again she didn't very much that was not The Diary of Anne Frank. I read the other stories in the textbook by Anderson and went out that weekend to buy The Portable Anderson. Since we were allowed to bring outside reading material to school I brought the book and read it in my free periods or study hall. When she saw the book her face turned red and she got mad. I think I would have had an easier time if it had been The Story of 'O'
So here it is and it still has my vote as the best of the lot.
