Mr. Crewe's Career is a 1908 best-selling novel by American writer Winston Churchill.

The novel tells the story of a railroad lobby's attempts to control the New Hampshire state government using all possible tactics. Churchill's prior novel Coniston was also a political novel, and the successor draws from Churchill's own unsuccessful run for Governor of New Hampshire in 1906.[1]

Though the book was perhaps not as praised as Coniston, it was generally well-received and popular.[2][3][4] It was the best-selling novel in the United States in 1908. Playwright Marion Fairfax also adapted the novel into a play which opened in New Haven, Connecticut in December 1908.[5]
