9780099264712: Babbitt

Businessman George F. Babbitt loves the latest appliances, making money and the Republican party. In fact, he loves being a Solid Citizen even more than he loves his wife. But Babbitt comes to resent the middle class trappings he has worked so hard to acquire. Realising that his life is devoid of meaning, he grows determined to transcend his trivial existence and search for a greater purpose.

In the economic boom years of 1920s' America, Babbitt became a symbol of middle-class mediocrity, and his name an enduring part of the American lexicon.

"Sinclair Lewis's wonderful demolition of the venal and pusillanimous nature of commercial America, Babbitt" ( Scotland on Sunday)

"A satirical masterpiece" ( Sunday Times)

A satirical portrait of a town obsessed by capitalism and the 'values' of the marketplace
