This satirical novel portrays Babbitt as an opportunistic, materialistic, self-important and unimaginative middle-aged realtor in Zenith, the “Zip City". His brief romantic spree and attempt at liberalism are curbed by his fear of criticism. Many philosophies expressed and characters described may sound unsettlingly familiar to some of today's audience. Narrated by Flo Gibson. AVAILABLE ON CASSETTE AND CD.
