With an afterword by E. L. Doctorow the Pulitzer Prize-winning novel of one man s pursuit of intellectual freedom in the face of ignorance and corruption, from the author of" Babbit Arrowsmith, "the most widely read of Sinclair Lewis s novels, is the incisive portrait of a man passionately devoted to science. As a bright, curious boy in a small Midwestern town, Martin Arrowsmith spends his free time in old Doc Vickerson s office avidly devouring medical texts. Destined to become a physician and a researcher, he discovers that societal forces of ignorance, greed, and corruption can be as life-threatening as the plague. Part satire, part morality tale, Lewis s Pulitzer Prize-winning novel illuminates the mystery and power of science while giving enduring life to a singular American hero s struggle for integrity and intellectual freedom in a small-minded world. With an Introduction by Sally E. Parryand an Afterword by E. L. Doctorow"
