The Job - Sinclair Lewis. She wanted to learn, learn anything. But the Goldens were too respectable to permit her to have a job, and too poor to permit her to go to college. From the age of seventeen, when she had graduated from the high school-in white ribbons and heavy new boots and tight new organdy-to twenty-three, she had kept house and gone to gossip-parties and unmethodically read books from the town library-Walter Scott, Richard Le Gallienne, Harriet Beecher Stowe, Mrs. Humphry Ward, How to Know the Birds, My Year in.

Sinclair Lewis should be looked upon as having keen insight into the plights of common man, much like Charles Dickens and the unusual ability to create universal, yet quirky, characters like the more modern Ann Tyler. "The Job" is no exception to the blending of these two authors. While not one of his best tales, it does depict the 'Universal Woman 0f 1910' in a helpless, tragic, confused yet faintly optimistic manner. Many readers complain of the tedious nature of some of Lewis's writings but, it is that tedium that the author is trying to convey to us. Life for the 'commoner' is a short series of happy and/or tragic events that are separated by long and nearly endless periods of boredom while feelings of uselessness and malaise pervade us all. In the end the reader will want to applaud and encourage our heroine at the novel's finish as she seems to make a final break into self-independence. But we are quickly brought back to the reality of the times in how Uma sees her overall social role and how she has always allowed society to define her future happiness for her. This is a sad, cyclical novel that depicts the inevitable unhappiness that life presents to all of us and how most simply march in the same barren place to the same monotonous drumbeat while we deceive ourselves into thinking that we are moving forward.......

Fans of Sinclair Lewis, like myself, are likely to be disappointed at this early work. Written before he developed his wry sense of humor and restrained championing of socialism, 'The Job' gets quite preachy. Not that he doesn't have a point. The time in America when the lower middle class was more heavily downtrodden by the robber barons is dreadful to comprehend. Added to that is the dire fate of women in our society. Here, in this novel set in pre-World War I New York City, the choices for a bright, energetic young woman are somewhere between slim and none. She can be a slave to the Simon Legree-type bosses or the slave to the drunken, abusive husband. It is a grim choice and our heroine feels the emptiness and terror of both.

Sinclair Lewis was a contemporary of both Jack London and Upton Sinclair, both avowed socialists. London wrote from his personal, heroic achievements; his philosophy was the product of his factual experience. Thus, his fiction has all the attributes of truth and not doctrine. Upton Sinclair, on the other hand, was a "fundamentalist preacher." Not that his stories were total fiction; he worked both in the coal mines and the meat packing plants before writing his powerful and influential expose's. But his heavy-handed fiction lacks subtlety. The impact of both these authors on Lewis is clear in 'The Job.' But the result tends more toward the preacher than the object.

Poor Una, the suffragette-in-training, suffers both at the hands of the cruel male bosses, and husband she feels forced to take on after losing her true love early-on. The husband, fifteen years her elder, is a study in boorishness. He is unattractive physically, lacking in romance, and totally inept at his career. The result is a drunken, abusive, faithless sloth.

Lewis' villain here is uncontrolled capitalism, and the hero is socialism. One cannot fault his motivation; the story is compelling on its own merits. But it would be so much stronger were it not for his evangelism. This is why his later works, 'Arrowsmith', for example, are so much more effective. Reading the books for which he was awarded the Nobel Prize, a singular achievement, shows how this brilliant and powerful writer grew in stature as he learned to use his innate, wonderful sense of humor.

In spite of the rushed, predictable, and requisite happy-ending, this novel is a compelling read. Una is a worthy actor in the realm of common American workers. There are echoes of Sister Carrie in the later portions, but fortunately, Lewis isn't as prone to the ultimate direness of life as Dreiser. Read and enjoy.

Sinclair Lewis is one of my favorite authors. I did enjoy reading this book and was surprised to see how significant this book is today!

Saithinin
S.L.'s style is fluid, and the story engaging. Una's plight was and is familiar, and her heroic efforts to keeping moving forward and improving her lot is equally familiar and laudable. The only glaring fault is the unfortunate ending, and perhaps is Lewis coming through as a man rather than Una as woman.

Ishnllador
Worth reading I guess but I think Lewis was tired o f the plot by the time he finished. The book in which much time passes continues to flow and then suddenly wraps up and ends in about 3 paragraphs.

Conjuril
Love Sinclair Lewis. This relates to me what my aunt must have experienced in the business world.

So many parallels to today's societal norms. A fascinating glimpse into the past, when women were relegated almost exclusively to menial desk jobs. Many edgy highs and lows, all mixed with a healthy dose of satire. No one weaves a realism book quite like Sinclair Lewis.
