George F. Babbitt is a real estate agent in the fictional Midwestern city of Zenith. Complacent, acquisitive, and conformist, his awareness of something lacking in his life finally leads him to rebel. Lewis's hilarious, poignant satire on small-city businessmen exposes the hypocrisies of middle America and still has power to provoke.
