About this title

Synopsis:

Upton Sinclair, the prolific socialist author who is best-remembered for his groundbreaking 1906 fictional expose of labor abuses and the American meat-packing industry, "The Jungle," began by writing jokes and juvenile adventure stories to finance his education at the City College of New York. Although born to an aristocratic Southern family, Sinclair's father was an alcoholic, so the family's fortunes varied wildly during his youth. A remarkably successful socialist candidate for Governor of California in the 1930s, many of Sinclair's novels revolved around his social concerns. Just as "The Jungle" was a masterpiece of "muckraking" journalism that led to initial regulation of food safety in the United States, novels like "100%: The Story of a Patriot" were fictional responses to Sinclair's real-life social and economic concerns. "100%" tells the story of Peter Gudge, a poor young man who becomes embroiled in industrial spying and sabotage. Said to be based upon a real case of a bombing in San Francisco, Peter's tale is compelling reading. Originally published by the author himself, "100%: The Story of a Patriot" is the story of a young man's descent into fear and corruption, and eventual happy redemption.

About the Author:

Upton Beall Sinclair Jr. (September 20, 1878 – November 25, 1968), was an American author and one-time candidate for governor of California who wrote close to one hundred books in many genres. He achieved popularity in the first half of the twentieth century, acquiring particular fame for his classic muckraking novel, The Jungle (1906). It exposed conditions in the U.S. meat packing industry, causing a public uproar that contributed in part to the passage a few months later of the 1906 Pure Food and Drug Act and the Meat Inspection Act.Time magazine called him "a man with every gift except humor and silence."
