Riassunto: Read by Anthony Heald, this audiobook is the 2009 winner of the prestigious Audie® Award for Best Literary Fiction. Elmer Gantry is the portrait of a silver-tongued evangelist who rises to power within his church, yet lives a life of hypocrisy, sensuality, and ruthless self-indulgence. The title character starts out as a greedy, shallow, philandering Baptist minister, turns to evangelism, and eventually becomes the leader of a large Methodist congregation. Throughout the novel, Gantry encounters fellow religious hypocrites. Although often exposed as a fraud, Gantry is never fully discredited. Elmer Gantry is considered a landmark in American literature and one of the most penetrating studies of hypocrisy in modern literature. The novel also represents the evangelistic activity of America in the 1920s and people s attitudes toward it.
L'autore: HARRY SINCLAIR LEWIS (1885-1951), born in Minnesota, attended Yale University, where he was editor of the literary magazine. After a few of his stories had appeared in magazines and his first novel, Our Mr. Wrenn (1914), had been published, he was able to write full time. He was awarded the 1926 Pulitzer Prize for Arrowsmith (1925) but refused to accept this honor. However, he did accept the Nobel Prize awarded him in 1930.
