John Barleycorn: Alcoholic Memoirs - Jack London, John Sutherland I couldn't exactly relate to London's alcoholism, being something of an inadvertent teetotaler myself, and his views on prohibition (before it had a capital "P") were naive at best and stupid at worst, but still I found myself drawn in to this one. Perhaps because most of the time it reads like a good autobiography, full of London's insights into youth, lust for adventure, and the crises we face when we ponder the meaning of life a little too deeply, and not like a pro-teetotalism screed. London really hasn't done me wrong yet.
