"Jack London used the breadth of his experience--as a seaman, oyster pirate, and gold prospector--to write one of world's greatest bestselling adventures. Now, his unique tale of psychological warfare on the roiling waters of the Pacific becomes one of the greatest entertainments of the year... He is tyrannical, brutal, and notorious. He is Captain Wolf Larsen (Sebastian Koch, The Lives of Others), the infamous Sea Wolf, who rules the crew of his seal-hunting schooner, the Ghost, with an unyielding iron fist. While on the high seas, he takes on castaway Humphrey Van Wyden (Stephen Campbell Moore, The History Boys), an effete literary critic unaccustomed to the arduous hardships of life on the Pacific. But instead of abandoning him at the next harbor, Wolf insists on putting him to work among his crew as a ship boy. Quickly exposed as the inexperienced dandy that he is, Humphrey has to fight for his very survival in this new and grueling world on board the Ghost. But his most exacting challenge comes from the captain himself, who engages Humphrey in a dangerous and unconscionable game. What unfolds is a psychological duel of wits, one that transforms Humphrey into a man of fierce self-reliance, hardened by Wolf's daunting demands, and emerging as an adversary every bit as formidable as Wolf himself."
