Author Bio for Lewis, Sinclair

Author Image

Sinclair Lewis (1885-1951) was a noted American writer. He became known in the 1920s for his books that satirized the spartan materialism and intolerance that typified life in small towns across the country. The word 'babbitt' (his book by that name written in 1922), is still used as a synonym for middle-class philistinism. He refused the Pulitzer Prize for Arrowsmith (1925) but accepted the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1930, becoming the first American to be awarded that prize. (Chambers Biographical Dictionary)
