Scritto nel 1915, romanzo in parte autobiografico, è stato influenzato dalle cronache, pubblicate su alcuni giornali, che descrivevano le cattive condizioni carcerarie della California. È, inoltre, una storia di reincarnazioni.Grandissima influenza sulla stesura del romanzo ebbero la teoria dell'evoluzione di Charles Darwin e la teoria della volontà di potenza di Friedrich Nietzsche. Il romanzo narra in prima persona le vicende di un professore universitario, Darrell Standing, detenuto nel carcere di San Quentin per un omicidio, che scrive negli ultimi tre giorni della sua vita le sue memorie. Più che memorie sono racconti di viaggi che fa, con il suo corpo astrale, durante il periodo di permanenza in carcere, soprattutto quando rinchiuso in cella di isolamento.Un inconsueto jack London, un libro forte e toccante.

    " Libro assai arduo da commentare. In senso buono, però.
    Romanzo carcerario, di denuncia, fantastico, storico, filosofico; c'è un po' di tutto qui dentro. Soprattutto, lo straordinario talento del primo grande scrittore moderno. "

    " Racist in parts, testosterone-laden throughout, but a good story. "

    " This Jack London book introduced me to the world of science fiction adventure after reading his adventure stories of the sea and Alaska. The story of a prisoner who is able to project himself to other places and times to avoid the harsh pain that he endures in prision. Still a favorite. "

About the Author
Author Jack London

Jack London (1876–1916) was an American author, journalist, and social activist. Before making a living at his writing, he spent time as an oyster pirate, a sailor, a cannery worker, a gold miner, and a journalist. He was a pioneer in the then-burgeoning world of commercial magazine fiction and was one of the first fiction writers to obtain worldwide celebrity and a large fortune from his fiction writing. He is best known for his novels The Call of the Wild and White Fang, both set during the Klondike gold rush, as well as the short stories “To Build a Fire,” “An Odyssey of the North,” and “Love of Life.”  He also wrote of the South Pacific in such stories as “The Pearls of Parlay” and “The Heathen.” He was a passionate advocate of unionization, socialism, and the rights of workers and wrote several powerful works dealing with these topics, including The Iron Heel, The People of the Abyss, and The War of the Classes.
