6/21/06: Radical Innocent
By Doug Fabrizio
Salt Lake City, UT – Considered a propogandist by some and a revolutionary by others, Upton Sinclair's writing blurred the lines between life, politics and art. He published over 90 books, but is perhaps best known for The Jungle, his 1906 expose of the inhuman working conditions in Chicago's stockyards. In the new book "Radical Innocent," biographer Anthony Arthur looks at the social activism that informed Sinclair's writing, and that helped him transform a nation.
