Summary :

He was a man's man with a reputation as big and solid as his name. Cass Timberlane. Judge. Age 41. When he wasn't sitting on the bench, he was with his cronies playing cards or hunting and fishing in the wild rivers and woods that kept him chained to his small home town.

It took a young half-tamed hawk of a girl to change that. The day she walked into his courtroom, he wanted her. And his desire for Jinny Marshland was to end in a driving passion that bitterly divided a whole town—and brought him to the brink of a kind of madness that changed his life.

  • "Sinclair Lewis has done it again. With that observant buzz-saw mind of his, he has sliced through the main trunk of American life... blends gusto with irony, and with the vividness of Tintoretto's 'Last Judgment,' it shows us in a hundred crude postures the infidelity which, says Mr. Lewis, is so typical of American marriage." The Atlantic
  • "By all odds the best book Sinclair Lewis has given us for many seasons. A warm, human story...." Virginia Kirkus
  • "Deft, precise characterizations in Lewis' best vein." Library Journal
  • "Funny, touching... successful." The New Yorker
  • "...lustily vigorous... formidably real. He is writing about the kind of people he enjoys, even as he derides them, and not using animated dummies for his satire." Springfield Republican
  • "There is rage and scorn, good dialogue and close observation of American mores in this book...." The Yale Review
