by Lewis, Sinclair

Garden City NY Doubleday Doran, 1935, hardcover. Published 1935, this is 1936 printing. Novel of fascism in the United States. -- Hardcover, top-edge-gilt, ribbon placeholder. Condition: good (spine lettering dulled; light corner wear; date stamp; pages bright and binding tight).

It is the presidential election of 1936. America has just elected Berzelius Windrip to the presidency, and his popularity gives way as his fascist policies turn the U.S. into a totalitarian state as he strives to cleanse America of welfare cheats, promiscuity, crime and liberal media. "He was an actor of genius. There was no more overwhelming actor on the stage, in the motion pictures, nor even in the pulpit. He would whirl arms, bang tables, glare from mad eyes, vomit Biblical wrath from a gaping mouth; but he would also coo like a nursing mother, beseech like an aching lover, and in between tricks would coldly and almost contemptuously jab his crowds with figures and facts — figures and facts that were inescapable even when, as often happened, they were entirely incorrect."
