About the Author:

John Griffith “Jack” London, birth name John Griffith Chaney, was a prolific American novelist, journalist, short story writer, essayist, and social activist. He is considered as the pioneer of commercial magazine fiction. He was one of the first fiction writers to obtain world-wide fame and a large fortune from his fiction alone. “The Call of the Wild” and “White Fang”, set in the Klondike Gold Rush, are considered to be his most popular and well-known works. His short stories, “To Build a Fire”, “An Odyssey of the North”, and “Love of Life”, are also among his famous works. He also wrote about the South Pacific In such stories as “The Pearls of Parley” and “The Heathen”, and about the San Francisco Bay area in “The Sea Wolf”. Jack was a passionate advocate of Socialism, Unionization, and the Rights of Workers. He was also part of the radical literary group, “The Crowd”, in San Francisco. He produced several powerful works on the topics of Socialism, Unionization, and the Rights of Workers, such as his dystopian novel “The Iron Heel”, his non-fiction expose “The People of the Abyss” and “The War of the Classes”.

Review:

"London's style is typically lush but his viewpoint is skeptical and dystopian . . . [the] story reminds us of the dangers we still court with our careless ways."  —The Times
