"The revolt of the parents against the revolt of youth as exemplified by a typical middle-class family of four." Fred Cornplow, shrewd middle-class realist, gradually wakes to find that Sarah, his selfish college graduate daughter, and his son Howard, still irregularly playing football for old Truxon, think of him as intellectually obsolete, as a convenience, as a walking bank account to whom they need return neither affection nor thoughtfulness.
If you are a father or a mother with young or grown-up children; if you are a young man or a young woman looking into the bewildering world beyond the shelter of parents or college; if you are curious about human problems today - Sinclair Lewis' novel will absorb you and entertain you. With his genius for dramatizing thoughts that are on the threshold of every mind, he writes with affectionate sympathy of the problems of the successful man of fifty-five, his son and daughter, his wife, his business.
