In my thesis, I compare the short story sequences of Sherwood Anderson's Winesburg, Ohio and John Cheever's The Housebreaker of Shady Hill and Other Stories. Within these texts, I examine the ways in which authors depict the pervasive sense of homelessness and isolation within American communities during the 20th century.
