Virtual Profiles with Dr. William Thierfelder: Jack London
Jack London, born January 12th, 1876, was a pioneer of commercial fiction and one of the first American authors to become an international celebrity, earning a large fortune from writing. London was part of the radical literary group "The Crowd" in San Francisco and a passionate advocate of unionization, workers' rights, socialism and eugenics. He wrote several works dealing with these topics, such as his dystopian novel The Iron Heel and his non-fiction exposé The People of the Abyss. This program explores those works as well as his most famous novels The Call of the Wild and White Fang, both set in the Klondike Gold Rush. Always fascinating and controversial, London remains one of the most colorful characters in American Literature.
