Lost Face Lost Face, Trust, That Spot, Flush of Gold, The Passing of Marcus O'Brien, The Wit of Porportuk, To Build a Fire Jack London 'Painted in broad, sweeping strokes, each tale is a tour de force.'--New York Times At his peak, about the time this collection was first published in 1910, Jack London was the highest-paid and perhaps the most popular living American writer. Lost Face consists of seven short works, including the title story and his finest and best-known short story, 'To Build a Fire.' Now in paperback for the first time, this collection appears as it was originally published. Jack London grew up in poverty, educated himself through public libraries, and, in addition to writing, devoted his life to promoting socialism (although he eventually resigned from the Socialist Party). Despite his financial and critical success, in the end he succumbed to alcoholism and depression and died of a drug overdose. During the 1898 gold rush, London traveled to the Klondike to seek his fortune. It was this experience that had the most profound effect on his writing. Not only did he mine the far north environment for subject matter (and all the stories in Lost Face take place in the Yukon), but his laconic style drew upon its cold harshness and loneliness, where people and beasts had to work together or against each other for survival. London's stories are treasured for their insights into the psychology of both people and animals--particularly dogs--and Lost Face is a brilliant collection of some of the finest examples of London's craft. Jack London (1876-1916) is author of Call of the Wild, Sea Wolf, and White Fang, among many other works. Pine Street Books 2005 | 248 pages | 5 x 7 3/8 | 1 illus.

    एक बार फिर उसने चारों ओर दृष्टि घुमाकर देखा, यह बहुत हर्षदायक नजारा नहीं था। चारों ओर एक धुँधली आकाशरेखा था। सारे पहाड़ नीचे थे। कहीं पर भी कोई पेड़, झाड़ी या घास नहीं दिख रही थी। यहाँ तो केवल विशाल और भयंकर अकेलापन था, जिससे उसके अंदर एक भय की लहर सी दौड़ गई थी। वह दुधिया पानी में थोड़ा झुक गया, जैसे कि वह विशाल जलधारा उसके ऊपर ही चढ़ी आ रही थी और उसको निर्दयता से कुचले दे रह...
