Book Description Createspace Independent Publishing Platform, United States, 2016. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 254 x 203 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. The Little Lady of the Big House (1915) is a novel by American writer Jack London. Biographer Clarice Stasz states that it is not autobiography, but speaks of his frank borrowing from his life with Charmian and says it is psychologically valid as a mirror of events during [the] winter [of 1912–13]. The story concerns a love triangle. The protagonist, Dick Forrest, is a rancher with a poetic streak (his acorn song recalls London s play, The Acorn Planters. ). His wife, Paula, is a vivacious, athletic, and sexually self-aware woman (in one scene, she rides a stallion into a swimming tank, emerging in a white silken slip of a bathing suit that molded to her form like a marble-carven veiling of drapery. ) Paula, like Charmian, is subject to insomnia; and Paula, like Charmian, is unable to bear children. Based on a reading of Charmian s diary, Stasz identifies the third vertex of the triangle, Evan Graham, with two real-life men named Laurie Smith and Allan Dunn. Even minor characters can be identified; Forrest s servant Oh My resembles London s valet Nakata. The long-bearded hobo philosopher Aaron Hancock resembles the real-lifelong-bearded hobo philosopher Frank Strawn-Hamilton, who was a long-term guest at the London ranch. Sculptor Haakan Frolich makes an appearance as the sculptor Froelig — and painter Xavier Martinez appears as the character Xavier Martinez! London said of this novel: It is all sex from start to finish — in which no sexual adventure is actually achieved or comes within a million miles of being achieved, and in which, nevertheless, is all the guts of sex, coupled with strength. One reviewer disparaged the novel s erotomania. Clarice Stasz comments: Little Lady upset readers in London s day for its gushing sexual imagery. [and] its close portrayal of the tempting pull of adultery. Modern critics, on the other hand, deride its Victorian coyness and sentimentality, its unrealistic characters.
