He is a man who has added a new word to our language "Babbitt" ... a word which means a booster, a success ... a sheep
Arrowsmith ; Elmer Gantry ; Dodsworth by Sinclair Lewis( Book )
19 editions published between 1984 and 2005 in English and held by 1,496 libraries worldwide
"In Arrowsmith, Lewis portrays the medical education and career of a physician whose idealistic commitment is tested by the greed and opportunism he encounters at all levels of his profession. Elmer Gantry dramatizes the growing tension between secularism and fundamentalism in 1920s America through the portrait of a glib and self-serving preacher relentlessly pursuing worldly pleasure and power. Dodsworth depicts the unraveling marriage of an American industrialist and his restless wife as they travel through Europe, and explores the contrasts between European cultural tradition and American commercialism"--Publisher description
