Much of the discussion was around where Jack London fits as a writer. He was financially very successful and continues to be well known, but his work is not literary or innovative in the way of, say, Hemingway. The nostalgia related to his memorable works that we read in middle school, but the connection was "like the Hardy Boys." Interesting that the Millennials in the group had read less or none of London's work, and that the short story To Build a Fire seems to have outlasted White Fang and Call of the Wild in middle school academics.
This book suffers from being "more a composite, without a flow" than an intentional book of short stories. Still we were glad we read it and enjoyed the discussion (the local venue certainly may have helped!).
