Main Street & Babbitt by Sinclair Lewis( Book )

446 editions published between 1920 and 2014 in 17 languages and held by 10,986 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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. These remarkable novels combine brilliant satire with a lingering affection for the men and women who, as Lewis wrote of Babbitt, want "to seize something more than motor cars and a house before it's too late."
