Coraddi, Vol. 40 : December, 1935 (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from Coraddi, Vol. 40: December, 1935 It was with a gnawing sense of fear that your reviewer put down Sinclair Lewis' latest novel, It Can't H ah pen H ere. A sudden chillness forced her reluctant mind back over the mocking pages she had just finished. She began an attempt to convince herself that a dictatorship in America was an impossibility, that Mr. Lewis was a man of great imagination, and that she could put her trust in the common sense of the American peo ple. But persistently her troubled mind followed the present tendencies and practices that Mr. Lewis extended to produce a dictatorship by quite a natural procedure. It is impossible to conceive the horror and shame one feels as page follows page. From time to time the reader is forced to lay down the book and attempt to readjust an excited mind to the peace and security of our world which Seems Utopian when compared to the future pictured n It Can't Happen Here.
