Sinclair Lewis is one of my favorite authors. With all the talk about "It Can't Happen Here," he has been on my mind. I thought I would see what other books of his were available on Project Gutenberg.
I decided to try "Free Air." It was serialized in "The Saturday Evening Post" in 1919. A daughter decides to take her father on a road trip for the betterment of his health. Now imagine the conditions and the types of cars back in pre-WWI. That was what attracted me to the story, initially. What I found was a love story between a well off young lady and a working class young man. They learn about each other's world as they learn about love. They also have a few adventures on the way.
I liked this book a lot, as I have liked all the Sinclair Lewis novels. He is another somewhat forgotten novelist, and I really hope that the attention that has been drawn to "It Can't Happen Here" will revive interest in his other awesome novels.
