    Note: Author's Note: Andrew Sinclair's biography Jack and research on London's Australian sojourn provided background for 'The Other Side of the Ocean', but it is not documentary. The Jack London story set in Sydney, 'A Piece of Steak', gave more insight into London than do his letters from Australia. The London-Crewe meeting is invented. The various scenes of the play flow into one another as they occur in Jack Crewe's memory.' (p.7).
