Sunday Sentence: Sinclair Lewis by Mark Schorer

Simply put, the best sentence(s) I’ve read this past week, presented out of context and without commentary.

Elmer Gantry is the noisiest novel in American literature, the most braying, guffawing, belching novel that we have, and it is its prose that sets this uproar going; if we are to have a novel filled with jackasses and jackals, let them, by all means, bray and guffaw.
