More About Upton Sinclair

Register your artisan biography and upload your photo! Upton Sinclair (1878-1968) was born in Baltimore. At age fifteen, he began writing a series of dime novels in order to pay for his education at the City College of New York. He was later accepted to do graduate work at Columbia, and while there he published a number of novels, including The Journal of Arthur Stirling (1903) and Manassas (1904). Sinclair's breakthrough came in 1906 with the publication of The Jungle, a scathing indictment of the Chicago meat-packing industry. His later works include World's End (1940), Dragon's Teeth (1942), which won him a Pulitzer Prize, O Shepherd, Speak! (1949) and Another Pamela (1950).

Reviews - What do customers think about The Return of Lanny Budd I (World's End)?

a welcome addition  Aug 13, 2001
It is exhilarating to have available reprints of the entire Lanny Budd series of books by Upton Sinclair, although each of the eleven volumes has now been cut into two parts.

After a four year hiatus, the last of the series, alternatively known as the World's End series after the title of the initial volume published in 1940, Sinclair has his continuing character Lanny Budd return.

Sinclair intended to have the series end with 'O Shepherd, Speak!', published in 1949. This volume contained an index indicating in which of the ten original volumes each character, both fictional and historic, appeared. For example, FDR was introduced in Volume III, page 305. 'The Return of Lanny Budd', although published in 1953, takes up the continuing story of the Budds and colleagues in October of 1946. This time, the Soviet Union is the enemy, not Imperial Germany and the Third Reich. The USSR (and Mao's Communist Chinese) were treated with, in the least, empathy in the original series. In 'The Return', these regimes are recognized as being as much a threat to world peace as the Nazis were before them.

Whether Sinclair wrote 'The Return' out of genuine contrition for the praise heaped upon the USSR in the earlier volumes, or whether thr writer was pressured to recant under the threat of McCarthyism, is open to conjecture.

But, regardless of motive, it is glorious to have Lanny, Laurel, Rick, Nina, Bernhardt Monck, and yes, even Kurt Meissner, return to my nightstand. The 'World's End' series is 20th century history in easy doses, albeit being the world according to Upton Sinclair.
