Written by best selling author Sam Keen and his son Gifford, Prodigal Father, Wayward Son is a warm and engaging book on masculinity, and a compelling and dynamic invitation for readers to recall the pivotal memories and conflicts that define their own father-and-son relationships. Filled with personal tales of their own struggles and breakthroughs, in this moving account of alienation, repentance, and forgiveness, readers are taught how best to confront and make peace with longstanding enmity and misunderstanding by telling their long-held, but often unexamined, myths and stories. Similar to the father-central memoirs of Pat Conroy and Andre Dubus III, Sam and Gif Keen provide guidance and encouragement to those looking for positive role models, and explores new ways to move beyond old wounds.
Prodigal Father, Wayward Son contains exceptionally evocative and entertaining storytelling: tales of marriage and divorce, misadventure and drugs, rebellion, abandonment, renewal, and ultimately new-millennium reconciliation. Sam, a stubborn, traditional academic, and Gif, a free-thinking, introspective surfer, repeatedly clash, make up, evolve, adapt, and rediscover their love as they collectively realize the acutely current message of Prodigal Father, Wayward Son. It marks the culmination of an exceptional writing career.
