Le heros de ce livre, George F. Babbitt, un agent immobilier de renom, vit a Zenith, une petite ville du Midwest. Riche, bavard, il a un avis sur tout et se targue d etre un citoyen modele. Mais un jour, une terrible angoisse le saisit: cette vie passee a arnaquer la veuve et l orphelin et a diner avec des petits bourgeois bien-pensants ne serait-elle pas vaine ? D une plume sarcastique sans jamais etre mechante, Sinclair Lewis decrit le pouvoir de seduction de la societe de consommation naissante, de l american way of life . Lire ou relire Babbitt aujourd hui, c est penetrer le systeme capitaliste, ses pieges et ses failles.Dans un style d une allegresse caustique, Sinclair Lewis atteint les sommets de l humour en faisant, a travers un fils de l Oncle Sam cuirasse par ses principes, l irresistible portrait d un notable englue dans une forme de mediocrite et qui tente de s en evader. Linda Le, Le Magazine litteraire."
