Sinclair Lewis (1885 - 1951)

  Sinclair's novels cleverly commented on society, from hypocrisy to the pursuit of wealth and status.  He abused alcohol till his lonely death in 1951.

"His central characters are the pioneer, the doctor, the scientist, the businessman, and the feminist. The appeal of his best fiction lies in the opposition between his idealistic protagonists and an array of fools, charlatans, and scoundrels - evangelists, editorialists, pseudo-artists, cultists, and boosters." 

- Martin Light, The Quixotic Vision of Sinclair Lewis
