In the Spring of 2003, Sally Parry wrote up questions for Richard Lingeman about his work, Sinclair Lewis: Rebel from Main Street. Lingeman has been executive editor of the Nation since 1978 and prior to that was an editor at the New York Times Book Review. He is the author of Small Town America and Theodore Dreiser: An American Journey. Here are the questions and Lingeman's responses.It is interesting to compare these answers with the answers given in the interview published after he completed his biography of Lewis.
