One of my favorite Sinclair Lewis novels. The story of a car company president, newly retired, who travels to Europe with his younger, much-loved and selfish wife. There are some truly vicious observations on marriage in this one; not surprising that Fran has some real-life roots in Lewis's first wife, whom he divorced.
