A satiric look at American society following the First World War, Babbitt is one of Sinclair Lewis’s best-known works. Real estate agent George Babbitt says all the right things, has all the right friends, and belongs to all the right clubs. Though he’s a man on the rise, Babbitt finds his days empty and yearns for romance and an escape from his tightly ordered life.
A winner of the Nobel Prize for Literature, Sinclair Lewis wrote stories heavily influenced by America’s urbanization, industrialization and loss of frontier in the post-war period.
