New Biography of Upton Sinclair

One of the first books we read for the Gapers Block Book Club was Upton Sinclair's classic muckraking novel, The Jungle. Now, 100 years after the publication of that book, there is a new biography of the author. The book is Radical Innocent: Upton Sinclair by Anthony Arthur, and it has been getting many positive reviews. Read what the Chicago Sun-Times and USA Today had to say about Radical Innocent.

I've been on a major biography kick lately, and I might have to add this one to the bunch.
