PositiveLos Angeles Review of BooksIt’s a story filled with all the hallmarks of an American family drama: premarital sex, drugs, alcohol, unexpected pregnancy. But Prager’s book isn’t simply about family lies, twists, and spectacles — these are just the spice in the first complete biography of the family who accidentally made history, the individuals who have shaped the debate surrounding abortion in the United States today.

RaveLos Angeles Review of BooksThrough interviews and strenuous research, reviewing diaries, articles, and photographs, Brown portrays the duo [of Post and Clark] in unparalleled fashion. Twilight Man is biography, romance, and nonfiction mystery, carrying with it the bite of fiction. Brown sweeps her reader from the post–Civil War era to the days of the Spanish Flu and through World War I and II ... Brown takes on the role of investigator as she unravels an epic of loss, heartbreak, and survival ... While Brown clearly feels for her subjects, it does not prevent her from illuminating their darker sides ... a layered account. Brown...avoids forced pity or rendering Post and Clark as tragic heroes. She leaves them pure and simple.
