Details

Main Street by Sinclair Lewis satirises the American romanticising of small town life. When Carol Milford marries Dr. Will Kennicott, she agrees to leave her bustling metropolitan life and relocate to his small hometown. However, she is soon horrified by the smugly conservative and often backwards attitudes in Gopher Prairie, Minnesota. A witty and humorous battle between small town gossips and a fiercely independent young woman, Main Street was a massive success when it was published in 1920 and was cited by the jury when Lewis was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1930, the first American to ever be honoured with the award.
