Brett's Books


Brett opens up the family archives—and the files of the FBI—to take you on a journey through his great-uncle Lev Gleason's life and career. You'll learn the truth about Gleason's rapid rise to the top of comics, unapologetic progressive activism, and sudden fall from grace.




Brett takes you through the corridors of power and into the living rooms of Laos, where he lived and worked after college. You'll meet folks like Brett's boss, a wealthy general who strikes fear into the heart of all who hear his name; an aging prince pining for the French colonial past; an American pilot who left home to fight and never returned; and a new generation of Lao who have more money than they can use, but still search for happiness.
