Autobiography of Upton Sinclair
Beskrivelse: 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 ReviewIllustrated with 17 black-and-white photographs.
