"Di Renzo’s superbly written introduction seamlessly integrates literary analysis with social-history research and impressive knowledge of marketing and advertising techniques of Lewis’s times. [This is a] refreshing and entertaining group of satires that have much relevance in today’s culture."James M. Hutchisson, author of The Rise of Sinclair Lewis, 19201930
