Jack London, one of the most read and recognized figures in American literature, produced an immense body of work, including 22 novels, 200 short stories, memoirs, newspaper articles, book reviews, essays, and poems. A significant and revealingMoreJack London, one of the most read and recognized figures in American literature, produced an immense body of work, including 22 novels, 200 short stories, memoirs, newspaper articles, book reviews, essays, and poems.

A significant and revealing feature of Londons literary life lies in his introspective observations on the craft of writing, brought together in this collection of essays, reviews, letters, and autobiographical writings. Londons public role as a daring, carefree man of action has obscured the shrewd, disciplined, and methodical writer whose practical reflections and meditations on his profession provide a vivid portrait of the literary industry in turn-of-the-century America. For this edition, a significant amount of new material has been added.Reviews of the First EditionDale Walker has rendered a valuable service in his painstaking collection of Londons writings about writers.

The result is a remarkably comprehensive view of London the writers writer.—American Literary RealismAn absorbing account of how hard the writer worked to learn his craft. . . . We find a master prose stylist concerned with problems of selectivity and concrete issues of tone, form, atmosphere, and point of view.—Modern PhilologyA remarkable collection. . . .

This is a firsthand look at a writers honest and forthright opinions on his craft.—Los Angeles Times
