Publisher's Summary

Sinclair Lewis (1885-1951) was an American novelist and playwright who, in 1930, became the first American to win the Nobel Prize for literature. The Job is one of his earliest novels. Concerning the exploits of a 1920s career woman, it is one of the first novels about feminism and is considered one of the stepping stones towards Lewis' success.

Critic Reviews

"Sinclair Lewis has one attribute of genius—sympathetic insight.... He has not only made a woman who works for her living the central figure of his story, he has insisted on doing so without sentimentality or melodrama or false pathos." (New Republic)
"Sane, generous, well-balanced, above all real, [the novel] interprets by presenting this world as it is." (The New York Times)
"Lewis was consciously exploring [in The Job] the choices and pressures that women felt personally and socially during the first third of the twentieth century. And, yes, this fictional exploration still has relevance emotionally and politically because the choices for and pressures on women have not been significantly modified." (Massachusetts Review)
