Jack London was one of the first writers to reach worldwide celebrity status and to amass a fortune from his writing. We are all familiar with his Klondike Gold Rush classics like The Call of the Wild and White Fang but his large literary output included dozens of novels, short stories, plays, memoirs, poetry, and non-fiction. He even wrote two novels in the nascent genre of science fiction: indeed, his dystopian novel Iron Heel had a significant influence on George Orwell in his writing of 1984. So said The Washington Post in a review: 'If you want to acquaint yourself with the writer whom much of the rest of the world equates with Melville, Hemingway and Faulkner, then begin with Labor's elegantly written, thoroughly researched and steel-eyed biography.'
