John Barleycorn or Alcoholic Memoirs Jack London (Famous Author of “The Call of the Wild” and “White Fang”) died at the age of forty. In this autobiographical work, London describes his life as seen through the eyes of John Barleycorn (alcohol). There is much controversy about the cause of his death just as there is about alcoholism and addiction. London’s brutally frank and honest analysis of his own struggles and bouts with alcohol was way before its time and more modern theories of addiction. With remarkable candor and insight, London describes the demons and gods he encountered through both friend and enemy, John Barleycorn. Following the worst of London's alcoholic periods, he wrote this autobiography beginning with his first taste of alcohol, his first experience at being drunk and his first hangover-all at the age of five. London went on to "earn his manhood spurs" through hard drinking at the steamy waterfront bars on the San Francisco Bay. It is a tremendous book. One of the first things that will impress you about this book is London's life. London was a literal 'super-man' in the Carlyle sense. This book details how London raised himself from incredible child hood poverty and lower class surroundings while still a teen, engaging in rugged, manly adverntures that were simply amazing. This book also relates how London's love of books changed his life Ultimately, it portrays one man's gradual resignation to the unrelenting grip of alcoholism. London at his electrifying, almost unsettling best. This masterpiece of autobiographical literature first stunned a world audience in 1913, and today continues to strike a resounding contemporary note. The personal revelation by one of America's premier adventure writers must have been shocking to a nation that viewed its drunks with a fairly tolerant eye. It is certainly important for those interested in the alcohol abuse in the world.
