With his breathtaking social insight and his graceful sentences, Sinclair Lewis-- a Pulitzer and Nobel Prize winner-- stands out as one of the most important American writers of the 20th century. At turns lyrically soul-searching and scathing in its honesty, Babbitt captures the essence of the 1920s while remaining a timeless piece of literature. Babbitt, the ultimate conformist and social climber, seeks power in his community and self-esteem from others. Outwardly, he is the ultimate " big booster," and he toes the company line with " zip and zowie." In his dreams, however, he is tormented by the emptiness of his soul.
