Description

“‘A vain, outlandish, anti-immigrant, fear-mongering demagogue runs for President of the United States – and wins’… Need I say more?! Written in 1935, Lewis asks if what would happen if Fascism gained a foothold in the U.S. As facts become fiction, can fiction become fact?” Bob

A vain, outlandish, anti-immigrant, fearmongering demagogue runs for President of the United States – and wins. Sinclair Lewis’s chilling 1935 bestseller is the story of Buzz Windrip, ‘Professional Common Man’, who promises poor, angry voters that he will make America proud and prosperous once more, but takes the country down a far darker path. As the new regime slides into authoritarianism, newspaper editor Doremus Jessup can’t believe it will last – but is he right?

This cautionary tale of liberal complacency in the face of populist tyranny shows it really can happen here.
