    This audiobook is a memoir told in three parts: about growing up in the wake of the destructive choices of an unconventional mother. Glen David Gold was raised rich, briefly, in southern California at the end of the go-go 1960s. But his father's fortune disappears, his parents divorce, and Glen falls out of his well-curated life and into San Francisco at the epicenter of the Me Decade: the inimitable '70s. Gold grows up with his mother, among con men and get-rich schemes. Then, one afternoon when he's 12, she moves to New York without telling him, leaving him to fend for himself.

    From the best-selling author of Carter Beats the Devil and Sunnyside, a shocking, big-hearted memoir about his bizarre upbringing in California in the 1970s and how he survived it. Glen David Gold grew up rich on the beaches of 1970s California, until his father lost a fortune and his parents divorced when he was 10. Glen and his English mother moved to San Francisco, where she was fleeced by a series of charming con men and turned increasingly wayward. When he was 12, she took off for New York without telling him, leaving him alone for several months.

    On a winter's day in 1916, Charlie Chaplin is spotted in over 800 places simultaneously - an extraordinary mass delusion in an America desperate for distraction from the oncoming war. From there, Sunnyside follows the overlapping fortunes of Leland Wheeler, son of the world's last (and worst) Wild West star, as he heads to the battlefields of France; snobbish Hugo Black, drafted to fight under the British General Ironside in Siberia in the Allies' doomed attack on the Bolsheviks; and Chaplin himself, facing a tightening net of complications....
