The People of the Abyss (1903) is a book by Jack London about life in the East End of London in 1902. He wrote this first-hand account by living in the East End (including the Whitechapel District) for several months, sometimes staying in workhouses or sleeping on the streets. The conditions he experienced and wrote about were the same as those endured by an estimated 500,000 of the contemporary London poor.

Great read. This man was a literary innovator.compelling story of a haunted adolescent.
Like mom used to say To know how the other half lives helps one appreciate what we do have
It is a slow read. The story of the poor in London. You must be interested in history, older history and how people were affected. It is much like the poor today, once there they stay there. But today it is a way to get something for nothing and then there was no way out.
