    Drawn from the secret, never-before-seen diaries, journals, and sexual records of the novelist, poet, and university professor Samuel M. Steward, Secret Historian is a sensational reconstruction of one of the more extraordinary hidden lives of the 20th century. An intimate friend of Gertrude Stein, Alice B. Toklas, and Thornton Wilder, Steward maintained a secret sex life from childhood on and documented these experiences in brilliantly vivid and often very funny detail.

    Jeffrey says: "Stark, Revealing, Honest, Sad"
    "Very Revealing and Secretive Indeed"

    Story
    What made the experience of listening to Secret Historian the most enjoyable?

    First and foremost, its content, which has been very under-chronicled. Secondly, the narrator, who has has a very clear voice, and speaks at a good speed. He sounds educated and a bit literary. All good points.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Samuel himself for being such a magical child and adult. The big cheese in the Chicago homo wrestling scene (I forget his name now), Alice B Tolkas and more.


    Have you listened to any of Sean Runnette’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Sorry to say that I haven't


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Absolutely !!!!
