This book has vitually no plot but doesn't need one. The day-to-day accounting of life in a small town keeps the story moving quickly all the way through to the end. The main character, Carol, is annoying but endearing with her neverending schemes and ideas. The attitudes and language of both men and women in a small town is incredibly real and hasn't changed much since 1920. It seems to me that there was a "Main Street" in almost every job environment I've experienced. If you have ever lived in a small town, you will intimately know every character in this story. For one of the best quotes you will ever read, check out the third paragraph on page 305. Feel free to email with any questions. ~LeAnn

A fiercely satiric portrait of small-town America, it created a sensation when it first appeared in 1920. If not the most important revelation of American life ever made it was the most infamous libel upon it. It is a brilliant blend of social criticism and a dramatic struggle for self-expression.
