Harry Sinclair Lewis è stato un romanziere e drammaturgo statunitense. Fu il primo statunitense a vincere il Premio Nobel per la letteratura nel 1930, "per la sua arte descrittiva vigorosa e grafica e per la sua abilità nel creare, con arguzia e spirito, nuove tipologie di personaggi". Le sue opere sono conosciute per le loro visioni sagaci e critiche della società statunitense e dei valori capitalistici. Il suo stile è, allo stesso tempo, comico, satirico e tuttavia comprensivo.
