      Sinclair was born in Baltimore Maryland to Upton Beall Sinclair and Priscilla Harden. His father was a liquor salesman whose alcoholism shadowed his son's childhood. Sinclair had wealthy grandparents with whom he often stayed. This gave him insight into how both the rich and the poor lived during the late nineteenth century. Living in two social settings affected him greatly and highly influenced his novels. In 1888, the Sinclair family moved to the Bronx , where Sinclair entered the City College of New York at the age of thirteen, writing novels and magazine articles to pay for his tuition. He graduated in 1897 and then studied for a time at

    Biography
    American writer of some 90 books, who received the Pulitzer Prize in 1943 for his book, "Dragon’s Teeth." One of his most famous books, "The Jungle," 1906, caused such a public uproar that it resulted in two new laws, the Pure Food and Drugs Act and the Meat Inspection Act, both enacted in 1906. The Sinclair family had its roots in the ruined Southern aristocracy. His father, a liquor salesman, was an alcoholic, and his disease coupled with the family’s poverty overshadowed much of Upton’s early life. However, he spent part of his childhood living with his wealthy grandparents, and the extremes that he experienced reportedly influenced him to later become a socialist. In 1988, his family moved to New York. A religious boy who loved literature, Upton did well academically, and when he was 14, he entered New York City College. At 15, he began writing dime novels and ethnic jokes to pay for his studies. In 1897, he enrolled at Columbia University, again paying his way by writing. His first novel, "Springtime and Harvest," was published in 1901, followed in 1903 by "The Journal of Arthur Stirling." Three more novels were published between 1903 and 1906, but all sold poorly. His fame came with the publication of "The Jungle," and the proceeds from its sales were used to establish a commune for left-wing writers called the Helicon Home Colony; within a year, it was destroyed by fire. Now nationally known, Sinclair ran for Congress in New Jersey on the Socialist Party ticket but was unsuccessful. Disagreements over the cause of World War I eventually split the Party, and Sinclair resigned.

    Upton Sinclair's The Jungle is a vivid portrait of life and death in a turn-of-the-century American meat-packing factory. A grim indictment that led to government regulations of the food industry, The Jungle is Sinclair's extraordinary contribution to literature and social reform.
    For those who think this book is not fit for high school reading because it's "gross, boring and hard to read," please take a moment to think. This is one of the most impactful books on American history after Appeal to Reason by Thomas Paine (for those who think that I forgot Uncle Tom's Cabin , that had no direct effect on the abolition of slavery. It, along with Bleeding Kansas , John Brown's Raid on Harper's Ferry, Senator Brook's attack on Sumner in Congress, the election of Abraham Lincoln, and numerous other events that led up to the secession of seven states and the form of the Confederacy ultimately leading to the Civil War.) This actually brought a direct reform on packing industries. Also you must remember that you did not have a piece of contaminated meat before you opened this book and started reading. I'd bet you would be somewhat more interested in the book if you did. And of course it's going to be gross, how else are you supposed to rouse the public to action? Bottom line, it is a vital piece of history that needs to be appreciated and understood.Submitted by John Kean.

    SUMMARY This Prestwick House Literary Touchstone Edition includes a glossary and reader?s notes to help the modern reader contend with Sinclair?s characterizations and language.Chicago, 1904: The lure of good wages and a chance to live The American Dream lure thousands of unsuspecting immigrants to the big city, where they find?instead of wealth and freedom?only stifling poverty, pervasive corruption, infectious disease, and early death. Upton Sinclair?s masterpiece of muckraking fiction-mixed-with-fact led to the passage of the Pure Food and Drug Act, but not in time to save the struggling Lithuanian family whose members come to life in The Jungle. The daily dangers of the meatpacking industry, dishonest politicians, and greedy businessmen, who care only about profits, conspire to rob Jurgis, Marija, Ona, and the rest of their hope and dignity. One after another, they succumb to the horrors that Sinclair so vividly depicts.
