The Complete Edition of " Lost Face -  Jack London ". (Annotated), With detailed Biography.

Lost Face is a collection that was first published in 1910 and includes London's best know story, "To Build a Fire". 

Lost Face begins with the story of the same name, which starts with a real bang - its exciting and I like London's writing style. He conveys the desperation and urgency of a situation really well. 

It's perfectly structured, hugely engaging, with fear and anticipation towards the end, the buildup of tension is really well done. 

  • "Lost face" is a gruesome tale about this guy, a fur thief who claimed to have some medicine that makes skin stone hard, unfourtanly for the Indian who had to try to cut his head off was successful and so his name was changed to lost face for beheading someone
  • "Trust involves" a man named Churchill who has an adventure near Crater Lake 
  • "To Build" a fire is a story from the viewpoint of someone who didn't cover himself for the cold properly, and the outcome from that.
  • "That Spot" is about a mutt that cost $110 worth of 1890's money. It talks about how Spot was really intelligent, but would rather steal from those not looking. As he did everything but work, lots of funny things happened. 
  • "Flush of Gold" is basically a love story gone wrong, her lover died similar to the main charter of To Build a fire, but he didn't have any matches. 
  • The Passing of Marcus O' Brien" has to with Marcus O' Brien, but before it got to his death, there was a lot of crude language.
  • "The wit of Porportuk", it talks about this Indian girl, then it talks about Porportuk who was in a lot of debt. One of the things that caused this was a ship that sunk from arctic ice. The rest is quite interesting.

Basically all the stories in this book have something to with a dog, or figuratively like in The wit of Porportuk for an example.

Author's Biography :

John Griffith "Jack" London (born John Griffith Chaney, January 12, 1876 – November 22, 1916) was an American novelist, journalist, and social activist. A pioneer in the then-burgeoning world of commercial magazine fiction, he was one of the first fiction writers to obtain worldwide celebrity and a large fortune from his fiction alone.

Some of his most famous works include The Call of the Wild and White Fang, both set in the Klondike Gold Rush, as well as the short stories "To Build a Fire", "An Odyssey of the North", and "Love of Life". He also wrote of the South Pacific in such stories as "The Pearls of Parlay" and "The Heathen", and of the San Francisco Bay area in The Sea Wolf.

London was part of the radical literary group "The Crowd" in San Francisco and a passionate advocate of unionization,socialism, and the rights of workers. He wrote several powerful works dealing with these topics, such as his dystopian novel The Iron Heel, his non-fiction exposé The People of the Abyss, and The War of the Classes.
