Beyond the Book

This article relates to Ordinary Wolves

Print Review

In the interview that you can read at BookBrowse, Seth Kantner says that Jack London's writing did influence him to become a writer; however he goes on to say that 'London said when you spat or pissed it crackled and froze before it hit the ground. It never did that when I was a kid––it got to 78 below one time and it never did that!'
