Jack London

(1876-1916)

American Author
The most successful writer of the early 20th century

Born in San Francisco of an unmarried wealthy mother, the most successful writer of the early 20th century adopted, as an author, the name of his step father John London.


Like Conrad , Jack had been a sailor before he became a writer.

But unlike Faulkner , he returned to high school after his many ventures, travels and odd jobs.

Enrolling at the age of 17 on a ship, his sailor's career ended after he was imprisoned for a month.


His turbulent life experiences were the prime raw material (The Call of the Wild, the Sea-Wolf) for his production of over fifty volumes of novels, political essays and short stories.


Strong supporter of socialism and women's right, his political wit is reflected in different works (The People Of The Abyss,1903).


He was one of the first novelist to see his novels turned into movies (The Sea-Wolf), and a very popular and publicized personality of his time.


At the end of his life, his famous experimental ranch became almost dearer to him than his writings.


Suffering from a kidney disease since he was in his thirties, Jack London died at the age of forty in his ranch near Sonoma.
