Description

Long acclaimed around the world, Upton Sinclair’s 1906 muckraking novel The Jungle remains a powerful book even today. Not many works of literature can boast that their publication brought about actual social and labour change, but that’s just what The Jungle did, as it led to the passage of the Pure Food and Drug Act of 1906. In today’s society, where labour and safety of the food we eat remain key concerns for all, Sinclair’s shocking story still resonates. Bringing new life and energy to this classic work, adapter and illustrator Kristina Gehrmann takes Sinclair’s prose and transforms it through pen and ink, allowing you to discover (or rediscover) this book and see it from a whole new perspective.
