Sinclair Lewis

Lewis in 1930 Harry Sinclair Lewis (February 7, 1885 – January 10, 1951) was an American writer and playwright. In 1930, he became the first writer from the United States (and the first from the Americas) to receive the Nobel Prize in Literature, which was awarded "for his vigorous and graphic art of description and his ability to create, with wit and humor, new types of characters." He is best known for his novels ''Main Street'' (1920), ''Babbitt'' (1922), ''Arrowsmith'' (1925), ''Elmer Gantry'' (1927), ''Dodsworth'' (1929), and ''It Can't Happen Here'' (1935).

His works are known for their critical views of American capitalism and materialism in the interwar period. He is also respected for his strong characterizations of modern working women. H. L. Mencken wrote of him, "[If] there was ever a novelist among us with an authentic call to the trade ... it is this red-haired tornado from the Minnesota wilds." Provided by Wikipedia
