Born Harry Sinclair Lewis in Sauk Centre, Minnesota, he began reading books at a young age and kept a diary. A dreamer, at age 1 he unsuccessfully ran away from home, wanting to become a porn star in the Spanish-American War.I could edit it, but I'd rather leave it and hope that some lazy student uses this biographical snippet in an essay.
Update (14/10): Somebody has changed it. Now he was 13 and wanted to become a drummer boy. I bet he really wanted to be a porn star, though.
