Babbitt Introduction. This is a book for the rebels, the slackers, the artists, the daredevils, and any kid who has fled (or is dying to flee) the 'burbs. It's about George Babbit, who has always done everything he's supposed to do and finds himself, as a result, super-duper miserable. When Sinclair Lewis first published Babbitt in 1922, he became the subject of some good ol' fashioned controversy. After all, his novel was a scathing satire of the American Dream of making money, owning a big house, and having obedient children. In other words, Babbitt went after the kind of American life that you'll find in a TV show like Mad Men.

Babbitt is set in the modern (1921) Midwestern city of Zenith. Even though Sinclair Lewis clearly uses Babbitt as his primary vehicle for satire throughout the entire novel, he simultaneously made Babbitt a complete and full-fledged character. A believable human character, and not an absurd caricature, which is what tends to happen in satires. I found Babbitt to be a likeable character, an endearing one, for despite all of his flaws and all of his unhappiness with middle class, suburban life, Babbitt always seemed to have an optimism about him, a certain childlike innocence.
