9780451159366: It Can't Happen Here (Signet)

First published in 1935, when Americans were still largely oblivious to the rise of Hitler in Europe, this prescient novel tells a cautionary tale of the fragility of democracy and offers an alarming, eerily timeless look at how fascism could take hold in America.

About the Author:

Sinclair Lewis (February 7, 1885 — January 10, 1951) was an American novelist, short-story writer, and playwright. In 1930 he became the first American to be awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature, "for his vigorous and graphic art of description and his ability to create, with wit and humour, new types of characters." His works are known for their insightful and critical views of American society and capitalist values. His style is at times droll, satirical, and yet sympathetic.

Review:

You can't read Lewis' novel today without flashes of Trumpian recognition * Slate * An eerily prescient foreshadowing of current affairs * Guardian * Eighty years later the novel feels frighteningly contemporary * Salon * Not only Lewis's most important book but one of the most important books ever produced in the United States * New Yorker *
