Inspired by the examples of his heroes Herman Melville, Robert Louis Stevenson, and Joshua Slocum, Jack London determined to sail around the world. In April 1907 he sailed from San Francisco in the forty-­five-­foot ketch Snark, with his wife, Charmian, a skeleton crew, and his writing to keep him company. Beset by seasickness and tropical disease, London wrote incessantly—­not only his major autobiographical novel Martin Eden and numerous short stories, but also a series of sketches recording the voyage itself. These entertaining pieces, collected together into the book he called The Cruise of the Snark, reveal London's indefatigable spirit and love of adventure at sea and among the Pacific islands. This edition also includes London's delightful sea pieces "That Dead Men Rise Up Never" and "The Joy of Small-­Boat Sailing.­"

is the story of San Quentin death-­row inmate Darrell Standing, who escapes the horror of prison life—and long stretches in a straitjacket—by withdrawing into vivid dreams of past lives, including incarnations as a French nobleman and an Englishman in medieval Korea. Based on the life and imprisonment of Jack London’s friend Ed Morrell, this is one of the author’s most complex and original works. As Lorenzo Carcaterra argues in his Introduction, is “written with energy and force, brilliantly marching between the netherworlds of brutality and beauty.­” This Modern Library Paperback Classic is set from the text of the first American edition, published in 1915.

Ce récit aurait pu s’intituler, mais pas de n’importe quel ivrogne : Jack London (1876 - 1916) y parle de son alcoolisme, de sa souffrance tant physique qu’intellectuelle. L’auteur de, de et de aurait pu couler des jours heureux s’il n’avait pas dû combattre sans cesse ses vieux démons ; il a été l’un des premiers Américains à faire fortune dans la littérature. Le Cabaret de la dernière chance est le récit autobiographique romancé d’un auteur de génie qui raconte sans détour sa lente et incroyable descente aux enfers en compagnie de son ami de toujours : John Barleycorn, une célèbre marque américaine de Whisky de l’époque. Jack nous dit tout... tout depuis sa première cuite alors qu’il n’avait que cinq ans !
