Der amerikanische Schriftsteller Jack London zeichnet in seinem Buch König Alkohol seine persönlichen Erfahrungen mit dem Alkohol nach. Wie der ab 1914 eingeführte Untertitel or Alcoholic Memoirs bereits andeutet, befasst sich der Autor in diesem Text mit verschiedenen Abschnitten seines eigenen Lebens.

Jack London sieht für das Wilde und Abenteuerlustige in seinen Jugendjahren den Genuss von Alkohol verantwortlich.
