Jack and Charmian London, The Snark, Jack London loved sailing and spent a lot of time boating around not only his beloved Bay of San Francisco, but also and especially the innumerable South Sea islands and Hawaii, which were the subject of a sizeable portion of his oeuvre (33 short stories and novelettes, and 4 of his novels).. He was particularly fascinated by the culture-shock both. "South of the Slot" by Jack London is about a sociology professor who wants to see how the other half lives. So, he goes to work at a menial job in the southern part of the city of San Francisco.   This book can be read and enjoyed on two levels: As a rousing sea adventure, or as a discourse on society and sociology. Jack London is my favorite author -- I am in the process of collecting first editions of all fifty of his books -- and yet I find Sea Wolf 5/5(5). South Sea Tales () is a collection of short stories written by Jack London. Most stories are set in island communities, like those of Hawaii, or are set aboard a ship.
