Overview

Upton Beall Sinclair, Jr. wrote nearly 100 books and other works across a number of genres. Sinclair's work was well-known and popular in the first half of the twentieth century, and he won the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction in 1943.

Here Upton Sinclair offers us a novel about the Wall Street panic of 1907. He tells of a financial disaster brought on deliberately by powerful capitalists intent upon the ruin of their rivals -- fundamentally evil people who live to out-maneuver one another. We are a nation, said Sinclair, fundamentally corrupt -- our government, our banks, our industries all seek personal ruin for its own sake. . . . Sinclair tells an engaging tale; if you don't know his work, you'd do well to take in and understand his paranoid vision. . . .
