Main Street; the story of Carol Kennicott is one of the Sinclair Lewis’ earliest and best novels and established him as a major American novelist. Main Street explores and satirizes small-town American life in the 1920s as Carol Kennicott tries to shoehorn her life’s aspirations into the narrow and hypocritical boundaries of Gopher Prairie, Minnesota. Published in 1920, Lewis went on to write 22 novels and three plays, and has the distinction of being America’s first winner of the Nobel Prize for Literature, in 1930.
