First state of the first edition. Lewis's famous novel about a scoundrel preacher. I am uncertain about the first state. The critical G on the spine could be either way, without other comparison copies it is hard to say.

About the Author:

HARRY SINCLAIR LEWIS (1885-1951), born in Minnesota, attended Yale University, where he was editor of the literary magazine. After a few of his stories had appeared in magazines and his first novel, Our Mr. Wrenn (1914), had been published, he was able to write full time. He was awarded the 1926 Pulitzer Prize for Arrowsmith (1925) but refused to accept this honor. However, he did accept the Nobel Prize awarded him in 1930.

From AudioFile:

Lewis's classic story of a corrupt and cynical evangelical preacher would seem torn from the pages of current newspapers if the dialogue weren't surprisingly dated. Elmer Gantry is charismatic without being likable, which makes voicing him a tricky business for Anthony Heald. His Elmer is an ambitious, self-righteous sociopath, whose timbre betrays no trace of conscience, self-doubt, regret, or sympathy for others, even at the beginning of his career. Heald's pacing, his accents, his narrative drive are all excellent, although his women tend to sound the same, mostly breathy, credulous ninnies. It may be that that's all there was on the page, but with no character growth in sight, the dispiriting effect is of one jarring note overwhelming the music from beginning to end.
