"In The Star Rover London indicts the savagery of prison life: San Quentin death row inmate Darrell Standing can escape his confinement and torture only by withdrawing into dreams of past lives during what he calls his "eternal recurrence on earth." Thus the fantastic becomes a vehicle for exposing social inequities and religious hypocrisy. Leslie Fiedler, Samuel Clemens Professor of English at the State University of New York at Buffalo and an essayist, poet, and critic, provides an important introduction to this often neglected classic."--BOOK JACKET.

The people of the abyss by Jack London ( Book )
107 editions published between 1900 and 2009 in 10 languages and held by 1,826 libraries worldwide
"The People of the Abyss was written at the beginning of this century, and yet, it speaks just as vividly of the conditions at end of the century. We are seeing the erosion and deterioration of all that was won through hard-fought labor battles: the end of the 8 hour work day; people working two jobs and still not being able to make ends meet; children left to their own devices as parents are stretched to the breaking point; the rise of infectious diseases, especially tuberculosis, as people are forced to live in more crowded, unsanitary conditions; the lack of healthcare; increasing numbers of people living on the street; and hunger. These were the conditions Jack London saw and described in East London at the turn of the century; but they could as easily have been New York City or any large American city; and they could be any large American city today." "Jack London came to the East End of London in 1902, and The People of the Abyss is the result of his investigative journalism that paints a vivid and disturbing portrait. It is both a literary masterpiece and a major sociological study. London posed as a stranded American sailor, sleeping in doss houses and living with the destitute and starving - the record of what he saw there remains as powerful today as it was then. The new edition includes an introduction by Brigitte Koenig, giving a full contextual background to London's life and work."--BOOK JACKET.

The valley of the moon by Jack London ( Book )
104 editions published between 1913 and 2007 in 16 languages and held by 1,788 libraries worldwide
"A road novel fifty years before Kerouac, The Valley of the Moon traces the odyssey of Billy and Saxon Roberts from the labor strife in Oakland at the turn of the century through central and northern California in search of beautiful land they can farm independently - a journey that echoes Jack London's own escape from urban poverty. As he lost hope in the prospects of the socialist party and organized labor, London began researching a scientific and environmentally sound approach to agriculture. In his novel it is Saxon, London's most fully realized heroine, who embodies these concerns. The Valley of the Moon is London's paean to his wife Charmian and to the pastoral life and his ranch in Glen Ellen, the Valley of the Moon. A new foreword by Kevin Starr comments on the themes of the novel and its interest for contemporary readers."--BOOK JACKET.
