London, Jack: The Star Rover. v1, 24 Dec 2007

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia:

The Star Rover is a novel by American writer Jack London published in 1915 (published in the United Kingdom as The Jacket). It is a story of reincarnation.

It evokes divided opinion; many London aficionados esteem it highly. Alexander Kershaw calls it a "cult classic" and London's "most soulful work." "It is unlike any other Jack London novel. Biographer Russ Kingman refers to it as marking "an abrupt change in London's literary style."

A framing story is told in the first person by Darrell Standing, a university professor serving life imprisonment in San Quentin for murder. Prison officials try to break his spirit by means of a torture device called "the jacket," a canvas jacket which can be tightly laced so as to compress the whole body, inducing angina. Standing discovers how to withstand the torture by entering a kind of trance state, in which he walks among the stars and experiences portions of past lives.
