This novel originates from the 'Teapot Dome' oil scandal of President Warren Harding as oil barons bribe politicians. It is about greed and the oil boom of Southern California in the 1920's. It is wrapped up in evangelic crusades by shifty preachers and leftist labor activists. "Oil" is a provoking novel as a man and his son plunge into the oil drilling business and all that they do and what is around them. Bunny the son becomes a 'red millionaire' and is a radical strike leader. The 2007 highly acclaimed movie "There Will Be Blood" directed by Paul Thomas Anderson and staring Daniel Day-Lewis is an adaptation of Sinclair's Oil! Read this novel and then see the movie. A Collector's EDition.
