A quirky assemblage of short stories, songs, reviews, and miscellanea related to the periodic resurrection of Upton Sinclair since his death in 1968. Upton returns to fight for the downtrodden and is repeatedly gunned down by reactionaries seeking glory and profit. It's an oddly moving, memorable book. ( )

Not much was funny about the intrepid, passionate, muckracking, American novelist Upton Sinclair. But a new novel about Sinclair is hilarious, bizarre, brilliant and wacko. Chris Bachelder's U.S.! opens with a still-dead Upton Sinclair sitting in the backseat of an old four-door Plymouth Valiant. Two young men have just exhumed his body.
