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.

About the Authors:

Sam Keen was educated at Harvard and Princeton and was a professor of philosophy and religion. He was a contributing editor of Psychology Today for 20 years and is the author of the bestselling Fire in the Belly and a dozen other books. He co-produced an award-winning PBS documentary, Faces of the Enemy. When not writing or traveling around the world, he lectures and leads seminars on a wide range of topics. He lives on his farm in the hills above Sonoma, CA.

Gifford Keen has a liberal arts degree from St. John's College in Santa Fe and has worked in a variety of professions - from apple picker to software executive, from carpenter to real estate investor. He describes himself as a retired software geek, reluctant landlord, and aspiring novelist. Gifford is the father of a teenage son and has a daughter in college. He lives with his wife in Santa Fe, NM, where he writes, meditates, practices yoga, and takes long walks in the high country.
