Some reviewers were outraged by Ann Vickers when it first appeared in 1933. "Persons unused to horrid and filthy things had better stay at a safe distance from this book," wrote one. Lewis's Ann Vickers is a complex character: a strong-minded prison superintendent dedicated to enlightened social reform, she also seeks to fulfill herself as a sexual being. Ann Vickers is in all respects her own person, standing up to the confining rules of her society.

This controversial novel by Nobel-Prize winner Sinclair Lewis tarries a new introduction by Nan Bauer Maglin, a professor of English at the Borough of Manhattan Community College, CUNY. She is, with Nancy Schniedewind, the editor of Women and Stepfamilies: Voices of Anger and Love. Also available in Bison Book editions are two earlier novels by Lewis, Free Air (1993), and The Job (1994).Review:
"Ann Vickers will surely take its place with the major creations of Sinclair Lewis. . . . Ann Vickers [is] one of his most fully realized characters; further than that, she is the most deeply studied of all the women in his work, beyond all doubt the best drawn of any."—New York Times (New York Times )
"Entirely delightful, intensely interesting."—Saturday Review (Saturday Review )
"A great story, brilliantly done. It has form—the form of Ann's life. . . . It has humour and satiric purpose, and it gives a brilliant summary of the changes in twentieth-century America."—Spectator (Spectator )
"An excellent indictment of the American prison system and a cutting satire on the various reform movements and cults which won the loyalty of Lewis's own generation."—New York Evening Post (New York Evening Post )
