A century ago stories like the one author Liz Brown and narrator Bronson Pinchot tell here played out in the shadows--and rarely left their mark on history. Brown describes how she stumbled upon William Clark and his male lover amid the relics of her own family history. Clark, heir to the "Montana Copper King," was among the wealthy gay people of the period who lived "twilight lives" on the West Coast, Brown learned, as she pursued his story through a raft of imperfect records. As narrator, Brown's personal approach provides context for this story. Pinchot brings feeling, nuance, and a firm connection to its emotional values. This astonishing history links the copper baronies and Los Angeles' water and real estate moguls with the Hollywood high life and German prisons of WWII.
