Dubus, Andre, 1959-.
Abstract
The author reflects on his violent past and a lifestyle that threatened to destroy him - until he was saved by writing.

Abstract
Jack London was born a working-class, fatherless San Franciscan in 1876. He passed away at age forty, but left behind a glorious literary legacy.

Haley returns London to his proper place in the American pantheon, resurrecting the author in his full glory.
