My father loved Jack London When I was a child, in his library, the little room under the stairs, there were faded copies of White Fang and Call of the Wild that had both seen better days I wish Dad had got beyond the boy s own adventure output that made London famous I think it would have helped to explain some things that troubled him throughout his life.For The Iron Heel is a fine socialist text but it is not just this Certainly the book influenced George Orwell and a stream of thou My fa

The Iron Heel is said to have been a great influence on later dystopian fiction, but London s book is completely lacking the subtlety and skill of Orwell, Huxley, or Burgess Where the latter authors tell carefully crafted fables, London relies on heavy handed, exhausting, and apparently plagiarized polemics Although they are almost ideological antonyms, this book is muchakin to Rand s Atlas S
