Wikipedia article




'Many Marriages' is a 1923 Sherwood Anderson novel, largely plotless and considered by many to be the beginning of his decline as a writer. The novel did have its champions, however, F. Scott Fitzgerald among them.Fitzgerald (1923), 5 The book went through several printings and sold well for Anderson before it was caught up, along with D.H. Lawrence's 'Woman in Love', in a crusade against "dirty books", the aftermath of which marred sales considerably.Rideout (2006), 498-500
