Upton Sinclair (1878–1968) was a prolific American novelist and a political activist. Sinclair's socialist ideals and dreams found their way to his fiction as he believed that no art can be practiced for art's sake as long as humanity still suffers from persistent dangers and evils. Such orientations have often subjected Sinclair to harsh criticism and even to demonization from numerous critics and politicians of his time, the most distinguished among which was probably President Theodore Roosevelt.

Skal mentions that Sinclair's They Call Me Carpenter uses a movie theater showing of The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari as a framing device. As a fan of silent film-and silent horror in particular-I knew I had to take a look. All propaganda is an attempt to persuade, though many associate it with dishonesty.

Now, as a matter of fact, we had at that time several millions of people out of work in America and many of them starving. There must be some intellectuals among them, I suggested; and the critic replied: "They must have starved for so long that they have got used to it, and can enjoy it -- or at any rate can enjoy turning it into art. Is not that the final test of great art, that it has been smelted in the fires of suffering? All the great spiritual movements of humanity began in that way; take primitive Christianity, for example. But you Americans have taken Christ, the carpenter --" I laughed. It happened that at this moment we were passing St. Bartholomew's Church, a great brown-stone structure standing at the corner of the park. I waved my hand towards it. "In there," I said, "over the altar, you may see Christ, the carpenter, dressed up in exquisite robes of white and amethyst, set up as a stained glass window ornament. But if you'll stop and think, you'll realize it wasn't we Americans who began that!" "No," said the other, returning my laugh, "but I think it was you who finished him up as a symbol of elegance, a divinity of the respectable inane." Thus chatting, we turned the corner, and came in sight of our goal, the Excelsior Theater. And there was the mob! At first, when I saw the mass of people, I thought it was the usual picture crowd. I said, with a smile, "Can it be that the American people are not so dead to art after all?" But then I observed that the crowd seemed to be swaying this way and that; also there seemed to be a great many men in army uniforms. "Hello!" I exclaimed. "A row?" There was a clamor of shouting; the army men seemed to be pulling and pushing the civilians. When we got nearer, I asked of a bystander, "What's up?" The answer was: "They don't want 'em to go in to see the picture."

Upton Sinclair does it again. If you question religion this is the book for you. Jesus comes alive in this book during the early part of the 20th century, doesn't like what he sees and goes back to where he came from. You will learn about history that you weren't taught in school also. A great book by a great author.

I had to read this for a History class I was taking and I thought to myself, "Oh great, a novel written in the 20's." I expected it to be slow and dry. On the contrary, it was one of the most exciting novels I had read for quite some time. This acts as an exposition of Southern California in the early 20's in the great muckraking tradition of Upton Sinclair. Great read, fast read, interesting read. Highly recommended.

More than waiting for personal reward and salvation, the message to BE KIND in thought,word and deed. Pass it on.
Quashant
I was curious about this . It has a couple of enthusiastic reviews and the author was famous and successful in his day. In my opinion it is trivial and an unnecessary book.
Reemiel
This was a great story that kept me very interested and was not that long of a read. I did not want to put it down. Upton Sinclair wrote stories that were pertinent to his times and are still pertinent today. Free books are wonderful!

Sinclair, as would be expected waxes indignant at organized religion's failure to work for social justice, but the narrative is lively. Some parts are quite dated, though his message is just as appropriate now as when he wrote it.

I was really swept away with this story. It unfolded with many suprises. I was amazed the way the author wove the story through the Bible. I have never read a book like this.
Loved this story with the unexpected twists and turns! Reminds me of another story found in the BIBLE! A good read for the rainy days of spring.
