Book Description:
Sinclair Lewis drew on his boyhood memories of Sauk Centre, Minnesota, to explore middle class life in America as no writer had done before. These remarkable novels combine biting satire with an lingering affection for the men and women who, as he wrote of Babbitt, want to 'seize something more than motor cars and a house before it's too late.' 'Main Street' was a phenomenal event in American publishing and cultural history; it is a wry, sad, funny account of a woman who attempts to challenge the hypocrisy and narrow mindedness of her Midwestern community where the romance of the frontier has dwindled to drab reality. 'He is America incarnate, exuberant and exqusite,' H.L. Mencken said of George Babbitt. With this boisterous, vulgar, gadget loving real estate man, Lewis fashioned a new and enduring figure in American literature, the total conformist and captured the noisy restlessness of American commercial culture.
