It can't happen here A Novel
NOBEL PRIZE WINNER FOR LITERATURE--First printing of the English edition----good copy--near fine--the book itself is flawless--Without Jacket "This is a full length novel written at white heat. Because of its subject and the manner of its treatment it may have a wider appeal than any novel Mr. Lewis has written. The subject is the possibility of dictatorship in the United States, and the novel shows how in 1936 a President made himself dictator, and what were the effects of a Fascist regime in democratic America. It is a remarkable story of what may be the darkest pages of American history seen through the eyes of Mr. Doremus Jessup, his family, and a group of friends. Mr. Lewis's object in writing the book, is to forestall, and if possible to prevent, the rise to power of Fascism in the United States. When Mr. Lewis wrote "Main Street" and "Babbitt" his thought was mature, but his sense of social comedy was stronger than his political feeling. Today , when America is still feeling the full effects of the long-drawn-out depression, his political as well as his social feeling is deeper, his irony sharper. The book champions the cause of Liberal tendencies."-----bright, clean
