A gripping psychological thriller by the famous author of The Call of the Wild and White Fang. It tells the harrowing tale of an intellectual, Humphrey van Weyden, who is unexpectedly plunged into a gritty world of violence and terror world after being rescued from a shipwreck by the demonic captain Wolf Larsen and his vessel, the Ghost.
Loosely based on a real sea captain and characters the author met in the San Francisco area, The Sea Wolf explores all many dark aspects of the human psyche while weaving a dramatic story which never lets up.
A classic of English literature which is guaranteed to keep the reader turning the pages as the characters slip from madness to insanity and back again. This is quite possibly Jack London’s most engrossing work ever.
Now with a new introduction by Sam Furlong.
