Jimmy Higgins will be with me for a long time.
There were times when I was thinking “Oh pleeeease get on with it!” And I nearly put it down but Upton Sinclair is such a phenomenal author that I trusted him to make me glad I didn’t give up. And I am!! As I must say again: Jimmy Higgins will be with me for a very long time.
