I?ve validated and uploaded Sinclair Lewis? Cass
Timberlane. This will be the 4th book of this
Nobel-prize-winning author?the first American to win
the Nobel Prize for Literature--in the collection, and
there is one more on the download list, or there was
the last time I looked. 

 Of his 22 works, the most famous not yet in the
collection are Elmer Gantry and Arrowsmith.   Years
ago I read a well-written and readable book about him
and his relationship  with Dorothy Thompson, a
journalist, that would be a good addition to the
collection, too, I think. I remember it more as a
biography, but in checking just now it may be just
about a small portion of his life, their relationship,
and WWII. It's called Dorothy and Red. I haven't read
any of the biographies about him.

Lewis writes satirical novels about  America and
various aspects of American society. I recently read
Arrowsmith, which I enjoyed once I got into it. Cass
Timberlane is more humorous, I think, although a
friend of mine who is reading Arrowsmith finds it more
humorous than I remember its being.

I forgot to add something to the long synopsis: In the
book, the chapter titles were merely numbers. Where a
new chapter  begins in the middle of a page, I left
them that way. Where it begins at the top of a page I
put the word chapter before the number hoping to
preserve the number from the stripper.
