Sinclair Lewis is a dominating figure in American letters, exploring and laying bare the cheap quality of provincial thinking, the shabby pretensions, false social standards, and the hypocritical camaraderie of American life. He is the writer of international reputation, who made American literature acceptable in Europe, becoming the first American winner of the Nobel Prize in Literature. During the decade of the twenties, the mirror which his novels held up to the material crassness and spiritual befuddlement of middle - class Americans established Lewis as a forceful cultural commentator, a best-selling novelist and the darling even of those whom he damned.
