1 Lewis, Sinclair The Prodigal Parents : The Revolt of the Parents Against the Revolt of Youth
Garden City, New York Doubleday, Doran & Company 1938 First Edition 
Very Good+ in a Very Good+ dustjacket. Bound in full red cloth. The spine is stamped in gilt; the front panel in blind. Octavo. 301pps. Stated First Edition. There is very mild rubbing to the spine-ends and the spine is slightly sunned. Also, there is a tidy gift inscription on the front pastedown. Otherwise clean, tight, square, and bright. All tips are sharp. The text is immaculate; no apparent reading wear. The price-clipped dustjacket, glossy in a mylar sleeve, has touches of rubbing along the folds, a couple of short closed tears, and shallow chipping at the extremities. Quite a nice copy, which presents itself well in its dustjacket.

"...Fredk. Wm. 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. He finds that his wife, Hazel, loves him as he loves her but that she is their ally. He discovers, through the presence in his children's lives of a young Communist and through the intrusion into his own life of a family of shiftless relatives and of a young girl far too good to love his son, that he has to look for the first time clearly into his own heart and mind. He has to make a decision about himself and the people he has loved all his life. That decision and his escape from eternal servitude make a novel that stands beside 'Main Street,' 'Babbitt,' and 'Dodsworth.'..."
