About the Author

Upton Sinclair was an American journalist and novelist, a Pulitzer Prize winner for fiction, and author of the classic muckraking novel The Jungle that led to the passage of the Pure Food and Drug Act in 1906.

Kristina Gehrmann is an illustrator and graphic novelist living and working in Hamburg and Meersbusch, Germany. She explores historical and fantasy subjects in a detailed and painterly style inspired by classical Western artwork from the seventeenth to nineteenth centuries.

Reviews

"When people ask me what has happened in my long lifetime I do not refer them to the newspaper files and to the authorities, but to [Sinclair's] novels." --George Bernard Shaw

"Even now, more than a century after its publication, The Jungle remains a gut punch. In this masterful adaptation, Kristina Gehrmann takes an unflinching look at the rot festering at the core of our contemporary world, reminding us that Sinclair's parable is as topical and relevant as it's ever been."--Aubrey Sitterson, writer, The Comic Book Story of Professional Wrestling and No One Left to Fight

"The original novel by Upton Sinclair remains a powerful rebuke of those in power who would prey upon the weak. Kristina Gehrmann's graphic novel adaptation provides an essential gateway to the revered classic and is a remarkable work in its own right. . . . This is a highly accessible work that retains the power of the original novel while inviting a contemporary eye."--Comics Grinder
