Summary
"As close to an autobiography as Jack London ever wrote, John Barleycorn recounts the author's lifelong struggle with alcohol. The brutally frank memoir created a sensation upon its 1913 publication and became a powerful tool of the temperance movement. Rich in anecdotes and written in a captivating style, the book also offers compelling insights into London's life as a rugged adventurer and popular writer"-- Provided by publisher.
