Synopsis: Swimming From Under My Father is actor Michael O'Keefe's first book of poetry. At times his style is reminiscent of Sylvia Plath and Robert Lowell. At other times he's a goofy Zen poet or a surrealist. Mostly, personal and confessional, these poems reveal an inner landscape of memory, loss, redemption and hope.
About the Author: As an actor, Michael O'Keefe has garnered both Golden Globe and Academy Award nominations. He's appeared in the films Michael Clayton, Frozen River, The Pledge, Ironweed, The Great Santini and Caddyshack. Television audiences will remember him as 'Fred' on Roseanne.

He's appeared on Broadway in Reckless, Side Man, The Fifth of July and Mass Appeal, for which he received a Theater World Award.
