"conscientiously researched and gracefully written"

Grant skipped from one marriage to another. His early experiences with his dysfunctional mother appear to have left him with a distrust of intimacy. It has long been assumed that he had a secret gay life, yet Eyman comes up with little in the way of firm evidence. The photograph of him working out in skimpy shorts alongside his long-time housemate Randolph Scott certainly looks ridiculously camp (gossip about the two men was always in the air). Eyman, however, isn’t convinced.
