to the way Lewis wrote the book. However, old-timey sayings aside, this is an incredible piece of fiction.
It Can't Happen Here parallels what an American regime, like that of Adolph Hitler's in Germany would
be like as it unfolded. The main character is a small town newspaper editor, who enjoys his life and the
way things have gone in his town and state, for much of his life. Doremus Jessup, the main character, is
even able to convince himself to stay out of the way of an administration that becomes more and more
authoritative and dictatorial. Unfortunately, things develop rapidly around the country and the regime's
bad deeds end up in Doremus' town and he's no longer able to ignore it.
The ease at which this turns from a cozy and sleepy small town to outright war on any critical voice is
quite drastic. There is tension and unease sprinkled here and there, but the reality hits Doremus and
when it does, he starts to act in any way he can. The country is virtually a loss and men like Doremus,
who just wanted to enjoy what they had accomplished in life and not become overly political, became
the ones that begin the resistance. I'll say no more, so nothing is given away.
I read this book over two days time and could not put it down. This is quite simply one of the most remarkable
and prescient books I have read in years. I highly recommend this as a Political Science expert and policy
analyst. Thanks to my view of the world, this book was both chilling and thought provoking.
Written by Lewis after returning from spending much time Germany witnessing the rise of Hitler.
Typical Sinclair Lewis style, a bit dated but very readable.
