⊗ Author Profile

“Born January 12, 1876 in San Francisco, Jack London, his real name John Griffith Chaney has a difficult childhood: abandoned by his father, put in the nanny while his mother is treated, and finally adopted by the second husband of his mother .

DR.After several moves to escape diphtheria, his family moved to a farm in the Livermore Valley. Jack will have to help his family by doing various trades: sweeper, carpenter, farmer, chicken farmer, seal hunter, oyster digger, launderer …

In 1886, he discovered the existence of a public library held by Ina Coolbrith, first poetess of California, who made him discover literature.
At 17, he won a prose writing competition with Typhoon off the coast of Japan and was published in the San Francisco Morning Call. He will, however, wait two good years before returning to Oakland High School where he will study Karl Marx and Herbert Spencer.

The following year, he will finish the two-year university program, in four months, and publish several stories of adventures, the most famous of which are undoubtedly The Call of the Forest and Croc-Blanc, repeatedly adapted to the screen. His first autobiography What life means to me dates from 1906.”
