52 in 52 Week 37: The Jungle by Upton Sinclair
Do not get me wrong. This is a propaganda novel for socialism! The last part is very "preachy" on that score, but it is still brilliant.
How strange that I would be reading it at the same time I have been doing genealogy research on the Swedish side of my family. My grandparents came as single people in 1923, met, and got married in Chicago, Illinois. What guts. I am sure they experienced great hardship but they ended up millionnaires in the end.
Sorry Upton, Capitalism rules!
