I don't know why this is not usually listed up there with THE CALL OF THE WILD as one of London' best works. It's an incredible look into the mind of an artist. Very well read, too.

Loved this book thru and thru...I've listened to it many times, and will listen again.
I found out about this book through reading reviews of Sergio Leone's 'Once Upon a Time in America'. Eden's 'intellectual realism' and his love and disappointment in Ruth mirror Noodle's 'street realism' and his love and disappointment in Deborah?both very rich works of art indeed.
Now about this audio book: simply brilliant. The first class and character-faithful narration by Jim Killavey made listening a joy. I must post a warning to bed-time listeners though; any attempts to fall asleep whilst listening to this book will utterly fail: London places us in Eden's powerful and unrelenting grip one chapter after another, stopping the playback in the middle of a chapter is out of the question, and you will not want to stop at the end of chapters either!
