“World literature” series presents one of Jack London’s most beautiful and poetic novels - “The little lady of the big house”, which was published in the last year of the writer’s life. It’s a story of an extraordinary woman. The protagonist is beautiful, brave, has a pure soul, she has dreamed of big love and then became its slave. When she realizes that her love towards her husband is fading, she tries to preserve it in all possible ways to regain the once burning love. With her husband’s friend’s appearance in their house a new passion penetrates into her life. A passion against which she's ready to fight up to death.

John Griffith "Jack" London (born John Griffith Chaney, January 12, 1876 – November 22, 1916) was an American author, journalist, and social activist. He was a pioneer in the then-burgeoning world of commercial magazine fiction and was one of the first fiction writers to obtain worldwide celebrity and a large fortune from his fiction alone. Some of his most famous works include The Call of the Wild and White Fang, both set in the Klondike Gold Rush, as well as the short stories "To Build a Fire", "An Odyssey of the North", and "Love of Life". He also wrote of the South Pacific in such stories as "The Pearls of Parlay" and "The Heathen", and of the San Francisco Bay area in The Sea Wolf.

London was a passionate advocate of unionization, socialism, and the rights of workers. He wrote several powerful works dealing with these topics, such as his dystopian novel The Iron Heel, his non-fiction exposé The People of the Abyss, and The War of the Classes.
