Lewis is brutal in his depictions of the self-satisfied inhabitants of small-town America, a place which proves to be merely an assemblage of pretty surfaces, strung together and ultimately empty.&&L/DIV&&R&&LDIV&&R&&LP&&R&&LB&&RBrooke Allen&&L/B&&R holds a Ph.D. in English literature from Columbia University. She is a book critic whose work has appeared in numerous publications including &&LI&&RThe Atlantic Monthly, The New Criterion, The New York Times Book Review, The Wall Street Journal, The Hudson Review&&L/I&&R, and &&LI&&RThe New Leader&&L/I&&R.
