It Can't Happen Here

Written by Sinclair Lewis | Narrated by Grover Gardner
During the Great Depression, the new president becomes a dictator in the name of protecting the people from a biased press, socialism, and crime. From a Nobel Prize–winning author, this classic novel has been hailed as “one of the most important books ever produced in this country” (The New Yorker).


First published in 1935, when Americans were still largely oblivious to the rise of Hitler in Europe, this prescient novel tells a cautionary tale about the fragility of democracy and offers an alarming, eerily timeless look at how fascism could take hold in America.

Doremus Jessup, a newspaper editor, is dismayed to find that many of the people he knows support presidential candidate Berzelius Windrip. The suspiciously fascist Windrip is offering to save the nation from sex, crime, welfare cheats, and a liberal press. But after Windrip wins the election, dissent soon becomes dangerous for Jessup. Windrip forcibly gains control of Congress and the Supreme Court and, with the aid of his personal paramilitary storm troopers, turns the United States into a totalitarian state.
