More About Upton Sinclair
Upton Sinclair (1878-1968) was born in Baltimore and began writing dime novels to pay his way through the College of the City of New York. While doing graduate work at Columbia University, he wrote six novels, including King Midas (1901), The Journal of Arthur Stirling (1903), and Manassas (1904). His masterwork, The Jungle (1906), aided the passage of pure food laws and won him wide acclaim. Active throughout his life in socialist causes, he invested the money he made from The Jungle in a Utopian experiment, the Helicon Hall Colony in Englewood, New Jersey. In 1915, he moved to California, where he ran unsuccessfully for public office and waged an antipoverty campaign. Among his later works was Dragon's Teeth (1942), for which he won a Pulitzer Prize.
Upton Sinclair was born in 1878 and died in 1968.

Further Adventures of Lanny Budd(II) May 27, 2006
(Note: this review is also posted under Wide is the Gate I, because I read the work as one volume.) Upton Sinclair's World's End Series is a great work that is sadly almost out of print. They seem to be available as paperbacks, with each volume split in two. Because of the high price, I would recommend trying to find this series at the library. The first volume is "World's End". By reading this series, you will learn so much about 20th century history and politics. The story of Lanny as a character is interesting, but the main drama is the worldwide political scene around the World Wars--luckily, Lanny has a knack for being in the right place at the right time to watch history unfold. In "Wide is the Gate" Lanny returns to Germany to aid the resistance movement against the Nazis, while acting as an art dealer and pretending to be sympathetic to the Nazi leaders. He has some exciting adventures rescuing a resistance worker from Germany, and later, a young friend from Spain. He also faces the desintegration of his marriage with the millionare Irma Barnes.
