Velist Contents The Man Who Knew Coolidge The Story by Mack McMack You Know How Women Are You Know How Rel. This is Lewis trying to mix genres a sort of mash up of Saturday Evening Post fiction with his satirical portraits of the Middlewestern middle class Most of the stories are shaggy dog tales wandering off indeterminately making the book feel rudderless but the exuisitely precise ear for monologue that makes Babbitt and Elmer Gantry so dynamic and propulsive is also here in abundance I certainly wouldn t recommend it to anyone but a diehard Lewis fan or a grad student writing about him but I think that its reputation as a total disaster according to Lewis s biographers and numerous critics is a lazy exaggeration

While certainly not the best of the 1920s writings of Lewis this book ventures new waters of creativity for Lewis and also integrates much of the world and inhabitants of the city of Zenith in the Midwestern state of Winnemac The nods to Babbitt and Gantry are also uite thorough by comparison with later works such as Gideon Planish also good in itself but not great like his strongest works I d definitely recommend it to Lewis fansbut it would not be an entry text by any means It should be given a better name for it does excel in creativity humor and furthering the world of Lewis s Zenith

    Probably the closest thing to a Midwestern Bernhard we’ll ever get I wish Lewis would have written books like this one freed from the constraints of scene setting and further developed the hysterical monologue of irrelevant American heart

    Not what I thought it would be It reminded me of Ring Lardner's You Know Me Al Not a story but the first person ramblings of Lowell Schmaltz
