Upton Sinclair, “Oil!”

A classic tale of greed and corruption


Oil! (1927) was based on the Teapot Dome Scandal (it loosely served as the basis of the Academy Award-winning film There Will Be Blood [2007]). It burst into the literary limelight amid soaring petroleum profits and gaping inequalities in 1927. By turns an ardent family saga, scintillating potboiler, and anti-capitalist tirade, Oil! ranks among the most important critiques of fossil energy ever printed.


Upton Sinclair (1878-1968) was a prolific American novelist and polemicist for socialism, health, temperance, free speech, and worker rights, among other causes. He won the Pulitzer Prize for the novel Dragon’s Teeth in 1943.
