She was raised by her Aunt Netta who practiced free-love, spiritualism, and suffrage, so these traits came naturally to her. She was educated and worked as a typist at a college, typing 100 words a minute, and later as an editor at the Overland Journal, where she met young Jack London and proofread The Sea Wolf. Charmian London was a skilled horsewoman, an ocean sailor, the consummate hostess, the ultimate muse and editor for Jack London. All the while, Charmian wrote magazine articles and her own three books. I knew I wanted to get to know her better through her letters and her own biography of their lives. I was amazed to find out more about her loves and life, and how she managed her driven genius of a husband, Jack London.(less)

“The public has an insatiable curiosity to know everything except what is worth knowing.”

“His heart thrashed like a bobcat in a trap. When he refused to run for governor, they begged him to run for lieutenant governor. Augusta was all for it, since she’d taken up with the Pioneer Ladies Society, serving punch in the back of the ballroom. Felt good to have her on his side for a change.”

“I was waiting at table tonight, on account of it being such a big party, and just as I was coming round with the savoury, one of the ladies went and broke her necklace by fidgeting with it at the ta ble. She thought she picked 'em all up but this one rolled under my foot and I stood on it tight until all the ladies went upstairs. I wanted to give it to you. You're a black pearl, Bertha, that's what you are and it's only right that you should have it.”
Daisy Goodwin, The American Heiress

“You can't tell how heavy somebody else's load is just from looking. The Lord doesn't give us more than we can carry”
Lalita Tademy, Cane River

“Writing is like driving at night in the fog. You can only see as far as your headlights, but you can make the whole trip that way.”
E.L. Doctorow, Writers At Work: The Paris Review Interviews

“Always has woman crouched close to earth like a partridge hen mothering her young; always has my wantonness of roving led me out on the shining ways; and always have my star paths returned me to her, the figure everlasting, the woman, the one woman, for whose arms I had such need that clasped in them I have forgotten the stars.

For her I accomplished Odysseys scaled mountains crossed deserts; for her I led the hunt and was forward in battle; and for her end' to her I sang my songs of the things I had done. All ecstasies of life and rhapsodies of delight have been mine because of her. And here, at the end, I can say that I have known no sweeter, deeper madness of being than to drown in the fragrant glory and forgetfulness of her hair.”
Jack London, The Star Rover

“It's better to stand by someone's side than by yourself”
Jack London
