London: Lashed, Lacerated, Lampooned and Lambasted
Description

London: Lashed, Lacerated, Lampooned and Lambasted is a unique collection of eighteen classic Jack London short stories that have been creatively rewritten and satirized into adult parody form featuring adult content and language. When author Jay Dubya was a New Jersey public school English teacher, he often enjoyed teaching and reading Jack London’s “influential literature” to his sometimes-enlightened academic students.
Jack London (1876-1916) died at the early age of forty but the author left behind a rich collection of literature still read and admired today. London was a master at the literary writing technique known as "Realism" where he skillfully describes struggles and life-or-death situations pitting man against man, man against hostile environments and often man against himself.
Jack London was born in San Francisco and helped to support his family at age fourteen, dropping out of school to do so. Spending plenty of time in city libraries, London was a voracious reader who studied hard and eventually passed the entrance examination into the University of California. He stayed as a student for one semester but then went to work as a sailor and a laborer. During the Gold Rush of 1897 London spent a year in the Klondike and Yukon territories where he gathered material and information about interesting characters that later would appear in his novels and short stories.
Very fascinated by the Darwinian theory of “survival of the fittest,” many of Jack London’s works focused on the endurance of strong men driven by atavistic instincts and primitive emotions.
The settings of most Jack London stories are in California, the Klondike/Yukon regions of Canada and the South Sea Pacific islands in and around Tahiti. London graphically described the great San Francisco earthquake of April 18th, 1906 in his newspaper account “The Story of An Eyewitness,” and two other stories in this collection take place in California. Twelve of the eighteen satirized tales in this London: Lashed, Lacerated, Lampooned and Lambasted work occur in the Yukon/Klondike territories, and the remaining three stories are set in the South Pacific islands in and around Tahiti.
London: Lashed, Lampooned, Lacerated and Lambasted is author Jay Dubya’s thirty-seventh published book.

London: Lashed, Lacerated, Lampooned and Lambasted has three companion books that satirize the works of O. Henry, Edgar Allan Poe and Mark Twain. Those three works are:

1) O. Henry: Obscenely and Outrageously Obliterated
2) Poe: Pelted, Pounded, Pummeled and Pulverized
3) Twain: Tattered, Trounced, Tortured and Traumatized
