Description

Western writer and historian Dale L. Walker writes, "London's true métier was the short story ... London's true genius lay in the short form, 7,500 words and under, where the flood of images in his teeming brain and the innate power of his narrative gift were at once constrained and freed. His stories that run longer than the magic 7,500 generally-but certainly not always-could have benefited from self-editing." London's "strength of utterance" is at its height in his stories, and they are painstakingly well-constructed.

Brown Wolf and Other Stories includes four of Jack London's most fascinating tales:

1. Brown Wolf
2. Just Meat
3. A Day's Lodging
4. Amateur Night

About the author

Born in San Francisco, Jack London (1876–1916) shoveled coal, pirated oysters, sailed with a sealing schooner, and worked in a cannery as a youth. In 1897, London traveled to the Yukon to join the Klondike gold rush, an experience that inspired many of his later works. Best known for The Call of the Wild (1903), he wrote and published more than fifty volumes of essays, novels, and short stories, and was one of the most popular authors of his era.

  • (1/5)
    very mono tone put me to sleep
  • (5/5)
    I was impressed. I expected an engaging story with some element of struggle. But this work, published originally in 1904, adds philosophical insight and a concise demonstration of literary techniques. The character's basis in London's own biography as a writer is interesting. I was originally drawn to this book upon having read about it while on the ferry to San Francisco.
