Charmian Kittredge London, Jack London’s second wife, is often dismissed as his typist, or worse, as a frivolous airhead who hindered her famous husband’s writing career. When one looks at her life and work closely, however, what is revealed is an entirely different story. She was a modern woman who had a status of her own. She was an avid reader, a fine equestrian, a pianist and a talented writer who created one of the most successful literary partnerships in the history of American letters.
