Summary

Jack London has been a bestselling author for over one hundred years. In his short life (1876-1916), he wrote twenty-five novels, and dozens of short stories, plays, and essays. Today he is recognized as a forerunner of such literary giants as Ernest Hemingway, John Steinbeck, and Jack Kerouac. Author of a number of well-known, to say nothing of well-loved, stories in our literary canon (White Fang, The Call of the Wild, and The Sea Wolf, to name just three), London also worked as a day laborer, Alaskan gold rush prospector, and seaman. He was also an adventurer, journalist, celebrity, polemicist, and drunk. Illustrated throughout with drawings, facsimile pages from his works, and contemporary photographs, many taken by London himself, An Autobiography of Jack London is a revealing portrait of this complicated and fascinating man in his own words, and is largely composed of excerpts from his memoirs: The Road, John Barleycorn, and The Cruise of the Snark. More than a mere biographical summary of a man's life, An Autobiography of Jack London aims to give the reader real insight into the character and personality of this uniquely American literary icon.
