Shelf life: Looking at secular books

This is not a new book, but, until a friend enthused about it, I had never heard of it or its author. Perhaps that’s to my shame; Sinclair Lewis published Babbitt in 1922, and a few years after was awarded both the Pulitzer Prize and the Nobel Prize for literature.
