Dark Laughter

A novel by

This early work by Sherwood Anderson was originally published in 1925 and we are now republishing it with a brand new introductory biography. 'Dark Laughter' was Anderson's only best selling work in his lifetime and was parodied by Ernest Hemingway in his novel 'The Torrents of Spring'. In 1908, Anderson began writing short stories and novels. He moved to Chicago, where he found work in an advertising agency and became friends with other writers in Chicago, including Floyd Dell, Theodore Dreiser, Ben Hecht and Carl Sandburg. Starting in 1914, the now-politicised Anderson began having his work published in 'The Masses', a socialist journal. Anderson's first novel, 'Windy McPherson's Son', was published in 1916. This was followed by the novel 'Marching Men' (1917) and a collection of prose poems, 'Mid-American Chants' (1918). A year later, 'Winesburg, Ohio' (1919), Anderson's best-remembered and best-known work, was published.
