Personal Fact of Sinclair Lewis

Sinclair Lewis was an American novelist and a short story writer. He was the first American writer to win the Nobel Prize in Literature. Although many literary critics have dismissed him as a novelist and criticized the Swedish Academy for their choice there is no doubt that few writers of his era had such a profound effect on American culture as he had.

Awkward and shy from his childhood he could never make friends and as a result he spent a lot of time observing and writing diary. Later, he developed a passion for writing and was ready to do all kinds of jobs to finance his writing career. Apart from working as a journalist and then as an editor he also wrote potboilers and sold plots to established writers to stay afloat.

Ultimately, he had his first taste of success with his sixth published novel Main Street. Subsequently, he penned many other best sellers; but at the same time became addicted to alcohol. Ultimately, he died in Rome from advanced alcoholism at the age of 65.
