Glen David Gold

Glen David Gold's Sunnyside, new this month in paperback, explores what he calls the “mysterious alchemy” by which “Charlie Chaplin became the repository of the soul of the 20th century.” That sounds sort of painful, especially for one so delicate as the Little Tramp. But then, in addition to delicacy, the Little Tramp had resilience, as did his originator, whose experience of negotiating newfound world fame and elusive inspiration at a defining moment in American history Gold so vividly limns.
