Summary
"Jack London (1876 -1916) found fame with his wolf-dog tales and sagas of the frozen North, but Cecelia Tichi challenges the longstanding view of London as merely a mass-market producer of potboilers. A onetime child laborer, London led a life of poverty in the Gilded Age before rising to worldwide acclaim for stories, novels, and essays designed to hasten the social, economic, and political advance of America. In this major reinterpretation of London's career, Tichi examines how the beloved writer leveraged his written words as a force for the future" -- Provided by publisher.
