King Midas: a Romance

By Upton Sinclair

Book Description

Atypical in a canon of socialist messages and stories of struggle against indomitable forces, King Midas is a romantic story about two lovers who have been cursed by turning whatever they touch into ivy. Biographers of Sinclair have said that he was ardently opposed to pre-marital sex. King Midas, in that light, presents a unique moral allegory from one of the 20th century's most renowned socialists.
