Product description


You can't read Lewis' novel today without flashes of Trumpian recognition (Slate)

An eerily prescient foreshadowing of current affairs (Guardian)

Eighty years later the novel feels frighteningly contemporary (Salon)

Not only Lewis's most important book but one of the most important books ever produced in the United States (New Yorker)

About the Author

Sinclair Lewis was born in 1885 in Minnesota. He attended Yale University and subsequently worked as a reporter and editor. In 1920, he had a major breakthrough with Main Street (1920), which was followed by Babbitt (1922) and many other successful novels. He won the Nobel Prize in 1930 and in 1935 wrote the bestselling It Can't Happen Here, a cautionary tale about the rise of a fascist president in America. He died in Rome in 1951.
