Upton Sinclair has selected approximately 300 of the choiest, which are here collected and published for the first time. Now in his eighty-second year,Mr. Sinclair has written a series of engaging and illuminating comments on these letters from the great, near-great, and the not-so-great. The result is as much a commentary on the tumultuous early decades of our century as it is an unsual and informal narrative of the life and times of the man about whom George Bernard Shaw has said: " When people ask me what has happened in my long lifetime, I do not refer them to the newspaper files... but to your [Upton Sinclair's] novels."
