THE AUTOBIOGRAPHY OF UPTON SINCLAIR The Author of The Jungle Tells His Own Story

by | Read by Peter Lerman

Biography & Memoir • 13.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1962

By 1962, when he published his final autobiography, muckraker extraordinaire Upton Sinclair (1878-1968) was 83 years old; he had lived a full life and written more than 80 novels, countless articles, and 30 plays. Narrator Peter Lerman nicely mixes Sinclair's urgent staccato prose with the more accessible feel of the author's reminiscences of dealing with an alcoholic father and seeking self-improvement through diet and writing in a cabin in the woods. Lerman deftly captures the confident tones of a man on a mission to improve his country by taking on the meatpacking, oil, and coal industries, as well as labor relations. Throughout his life Sinclair fought for "social justice by democratic means." If he were alive today, he'd be podcasting about it. B.P. © AudioFile 2022, Portland, Maine [Published: MARCH 2022]
