First published in 1962, on the suggestion of his readers throughout his expansive writing career, this is the self-penned biography of Upton Sinclair, author of hundreds of novels, plays, homilies, diatribes and pamphlets. Written at the age 83, Sinclair at last allows his loyal readership to glean an in-depth look at the man who discovered the Jungle in Armours Meat Industry at 28, founded a Utopian co-operative in 1908, and who muckraked through all of America?to become the finest and most devoted polemicist this country has seen????????from his childhood beginnings in Maryland to his youth in New York through to publication of his first novels and political career and beyond. Of his work, Upton Sinclair says:?The English Queen Mary, who failed to hold the French port of Calais, said that when she died, the word 'Calais' would be found written on her heart. I don't know whether anyone will care to examine my heart, but if they do they will find two words there--'Social Justice.' For that is what I have believed in and fought for during sixty-three of my eighty-four books.?His is an intellectual's book dealing with one who made intellectual history, and no self-respecting intellectual tradesman will fail to read it.????????Kirkus Review Illustrated with 17 black-and-white photographs
