Barnes & Noble Classics pulls together a constellation of influences<U+0151>biographical, historical, and literary<U+0151>to enrich each reader's understanding of these enduring works. <U+0147>This is America<U+0151>a town of a few thousand, in a region of wheat and corn and dairies and little groves. So Sinclair Lewis<U+0151>recipient of the Nobel Prize and rejecter of the Pulitzer<U+0151>prefaces his novel Main Street. Lewis is brutal in his depictions of the self-satisfied inhabitants of small-town America, a place which proves to be merely an assemblage of pretty surfaces, strung together and ultimately empty.Brooke Allen holds a Ph.D. in English literature from Columbia University. She is a book critic whose work has appeared in numerous publications including The Atlantic Monthly, The New Criterion, The New York Times Book Review, The Wall Street Journal, The Hudson Review, and The New Leader. A collection of her essays, Twentieth Century Attitudes, will be published in 2003
