Description

“Turning Daylight” is a 1910 novel by Jack London. John Griffith London (1876 – 1916), commonly known as Jack London, was an American journalist, social activist, and novelist. He was an early pioneer of commercial magazine fiction, becoming one of the first globally-famous celebrity writers who were able to earn a large amount of money from their writing. London is famous for his contributions to early science fiction and also notably belonged to “The Crowd”, a literary group an Francisco known for its radical members and ideas. “Turning Daylight” was among the best-selling books of the year it was published, as well as London’s best-selling book during his lifetime. The story takes place in the Yukon Territory in 1893 and follows a man who became the most successful entrepreneur during the Alaskan Gold Rush. This volume will appeal to those with an interest in American history and literature, and it is not to be missed by fan’s of London’s seminal work. Other notable works by this author include: “The Cruise of the Dazzler” (1902), “The Kempton-Wace Letters” (1903), and “The Call of the Wild” (1903). Many vintage books such as this are increasingly scarce and expensive. It is with this in mind that we are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete with a specially-commissioned new biography of the author.
