Intimate Lies

A compelling account of the turbulent romance of F. Scott Fitzgerald and Sheilah Graham—a beautifully evoked love story written by Sheilah Graham’s son using the papers, diaries, notes, and correspondence she bequeathed to him.

Robert Westbrook’s first book was published in 1963, when he was 17.

He’s been a working writer ever since, penning nearly 20 books, including the Howard Moon Deer Mysteries and Intimate Lies, the acclaimed memoir of his mother Sheilah Graham’s love affair with the brilliant but haunted author F. Scott Fitzgerald.
