Publisher's Summary

Dark spruce forest frowned on either side the frozen waterway. The trees had been stripped by a recent wind of their white covering of frost, and they seemed to lean towards each other, black and ominous, in the fading light. A vast silence reigned over the land. The land itself was a desolation, lifeless, without movement, so lone and cold that the spirit of it was not even that of sadness. There was a hint in it of laughter, but of a laughter more terrible than any sadness - a laughter that was mirthless as the smile of the sphinx, a laughter cold as the frost and partaking of the grimness of infallibility. It was the masterful and incommunicable wisdom of eternity laughing at the futility of life and the effort of life. It was the Wild, the savage, frozen-hearted Northland Wild.

Strong, spirited performance of a classic novel

What did you love best about White Fang?

Kevin Theis' performance was strong and expressive. Amongst other things he showed particular skill at being able to convey a fiery tone reflecting White Fang's bitterness and hatred and the theme of struggling for survival.


What was one of the most memorable moments of White Fang?

The opening to Part I of the novel articulates the most grim and hostile wild North land. Here London is at his toughest, most ominous and brilliant! Yet the humans Bill and Henry are all so human and relatable: “You don’t get no coffee,” Henry announced.


Have you listened to any of Kevin Theis’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

No, but would love to hear him perform another novel, something with more dialogue. Theis' skillful rendering of Bill and Henry's dialogue was a highlight from reading White Fang.
