In Main Street and Babbitt, Sinclair Lewis drew on his boyhood memories of Sauk Centre, Minnesota, to reveal as no writer had done before the complacency and conformity of middle-class life in America.

He is a man who has added a new word to our language "Babbitt" ... a word which means a booster, a success ... a sheep

20 editions published between 1984 and 2002 in English and held by 1,505 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

Main Street by Sinclair Lewis( file )
47 editions published between 1967 and 2011 in English and held by 1,435 libraries worldwide
The lonely predicament of Carol Kennicott, caught between her desires for social reform and individual happiness, reflects the position in which America's turn-of-the-century "emancipated woman" found herself. Published in 1920, Main Street was Sinclair Lewis' first really successful novel. An allegory of exile and return, Main Street attacks the complacency and ingrown mores of those who resist change, who are under the illusion that they have chosen their tradition. Maxwell Geismar lauded this work as "a remarkable diary of the middle-class mind in America."
