Opinion

From Library Staff

It is 1936. America has just elected Berzelius Windrip to the presidency-and his fascist policies turn the U.S. into a totalitarian state.

Nobel and Pulitzer prize winning novelist Sinclair Lewis's status rests on just a handful of books ("Elmer Gantry," "Main Street," "Babbitt") and this is his most provocative and most interesting. Disturbed by the rising of fascism in Europe, Lewis imagines tyranny and labor camps coming to America. It's a little heavy-handed, but this kind of social consciousness and polemical spirit is largely missing from contemporary writers.

At the writing of the U.S. Constitution the founding fathers thought that this would indeed take place at some time. They tried to make a government that could put it off as long as possible. It is a good read (even though it is one of his little known works). We should all read it and hold the lesson in mind and hope that it does not happen here. Read it and see.
