Fred Siegel’s The Revolt Against the Masses

“[Sinclair] Lewis presented himself as a man of the prairies who knew America intimately. But [Mark] Schorer noted that he knew little of the United States and almost nothing of its history. Rather, he was a literary man through and through though some would describe him as an academic manqué because he made up for his lack of experience by doing detailed research and drew on the fiction of H.G. Wells (after whom he had named a son) for the themes of his early writings.” The Revolt Against the Masses, copyright © 2013 by Fred Siegel, Encounter Books, Page 46.
