Harry Sinclair Lewis (February 7, 1885 – January 10, 1951) was an American novelist, short story writer and playwright. In 1930, he became the first writer from the United States (and the first from the Americas) to receive the Nobel Prize in Literature, which was awarded "for his vigorous and graphic art of description and his ability to create, with wit and humor, new types of characters." His works are known for their critical views of American capitalism and materialism between the wars. He is also respected for his strong characterizations of modern working women. H. L. Mencken wrote of him, "[If] there was ever a novelist among us with an authentic call to the trade ... it is this red-haired tornado from the Minnesota wilds." He has been honored by the U.S. Postal Service with a postage stamp in the Great Americans series. The book has been autographed on the title page by Sinclair Lewis with a fountain pen in blue...............BOTH BOOK AND AUTOGRAPH ARE IN VERY GOOD CONDITION.
