Winesburg, Ohio Winesburg, Ohio question

Help me figure out which book this was? (From the 50s/60s)

Sounds like A New Life by Bernard Malamud. But yeah, you shouldn't randomly post this on a discussion of Winesburg, Ohio where no one will ever see it.....

You should post it here...

A New Life, was that the novel about the academic who had an affair with the wife of another teacher at the school, she ends up divorcing him and marrying the protagonist who has been fired and now has no job and no prospects? He only taught one year at the college, a literature program? He was evaluated at the middle of the pack even after one year as his students turned in average work?
