Today universally recognized as a landmark in American literature, Elmer Gantry scandalized readers when it was first published, causing Sinclair Lewis to be "invited" to a jail cell in New Hampshire and to his own lynching in Virginia. His portrait of a golden-tongued evangelist who rises to power within his church-a saver of souls who lives a life of hypocrisy, sensuality, and ruthless self-indulgence-is also the record of a period, a reign of grotesque vulgarity, which but for Lewis would have left no record of itself. Elmer Gantry has been called the greatest, most vital, and most penetrating study of hypocrisy that has been written since Voltaire.

Widely considered one of Sinclair Lewis' finest novels, Arrowsmith was awarded the Pulitzer Prize. Lewis, however, refused the award, commenting "All prizes are dangerous" (despite his later acceptance of the Nobel Prize for Literature). The book follows Martin Arrowsmith from his small American town to his place at the pinnacle of the scientific community. A progressive thinker, Dr. Arrowsmith takes issue with the state of American medicine in the 1920s. He makes several important discoveries and suffers great personal loss, all while trying to engage in discussions around medical ethics that are still relevant today.

Carol Milford is a free-spirited young woman who marries Will Kennicott, a small-town doctor. After they marry, Will convinces Carol to move to his home town of Gopher Prairie, Minnesota. Unimpressed by the backwardness of the town, Carole embarks on a crusade of civic reform that is not received welcomingly. This text is highly recommended for fans and collectors of Lewis's work, and it would make for a great addition to any bookshelf. Harry Sinclair Lewis (1885 - 1951) was an American novelist, short-story writer, and playwright. He became the first American writer to win the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1930. Many antiquarian books such as this are increasingly scarce and expensive, and it is with this in mind that we are republishing this volume now, in an affordable, high-quality, modern edition. It comes complete with a specially commissioned biography of the author.

Literary agent Joe Allston, the central character of Stegner's novel All the Little Live Things, is now retired and, in his own words, 'just killing time until time gets around to killing me.' His parents and his only son are long dead, leaving him with neither ancestors nor descendants, tradition nor ties. His job, trafficking the talent of others, had not been his choice. He passes through life as a spectator. A postcard from an old friend causes Allston to return to the journals of a trip he and his wife had taken years before, a journey to his mother's birthplace, where he'd sought a link with the past. The memories of that trip, both grotesque and poignant, move through layers of time and meaning, and reveal that Joe Allston isn't quite spectator enough. Wallace Stegner was the author of, among other works of fiction, Remembering Laughter (1973); The Big Rock Candy Mountain (1943); Joe Hill (1950); All the Little Live Things (1967, Commonwealth Club Gold Medal); A Shooting Star (1961); Angle of Repose (1971, Pulitzer Prize); Recapitulation (1979); Crossing to Safety (1987); and Collected Stories (1990). His nonfiction includes Beyond the Hundredth Meridian (1954); Wolf Willow (1963); The Sound of Mountain Water (essays, 1969); The Uneasy Chair: A Biography of Bernard deVoto (1964); American Places (with Page Stegner, 1981); and Where the Bluebird Sings to the Lemonade Springs: Living and Writing in the West (1992). Three short stories have won O.Henry prizes, and in 1980 he received the Robert Kirsch Award from the Los Angeles Times for his lifetime literary achievements.
