Babbit

Babbit - Sinclair Lewis Sinclair Lewis knocks another one out of the park! A hard examination of a shallow, materialistic, overly status-conscious, social climbing, upper middle class, middle-management corporate drone. Allowing himself to be defined by his fancy suits and vacations, instead of devoting himself to his relationships with friends and family, the hollow nature of Babbitt's life is painfully obvious to all but him. Masterfully written, with just enough sympathy to draw the reader in, but harsh enough to make effective social commentary.
