ELMER GANTRY by Sinclair Lewis (unabridged) is presented by Blackstone Audio and comes with what is perhaps the best audiobook app available (see FEATURES, below). Winner of the 2009 Audie® Award for Best Literary Fiction! “Elmer Gantry” is the portrait of a silver-tongued evangelist who rises to power within his church, yet lives a life of hypocrisy, sensuality, and ruthless self-indulgence. “Elmer Gantry” is considered a landmark in American literature and one of the most penetrating studies of hypocrisy in modern literature. Self-contained, this audiobook app is perfect for your commute, on a trip, or while relaxing. Based on a library-quality recording, this app was built especially for your iPhone and iPod Touch.
