Summary
Sammy Sullivan is working his way down the ladder of success. How many men can get themselves fired and have his only son expelled from prep school all in one day? Now, after almost eighteen years, he and Jake may finally get to know each other. Jakes knows virtually nothing about his roots, so Sammy shows him the old neighborhood in the far reaches of Queens. But it's been thirty years. Jake doesn't want his father to miss out the second time around on the good things he blew the first time. They've got a whole weekend together where Sammy will confront his dysfunctional childhood, and Jake will face a past he never knew he had. This isn't your typical father-son story. Here, one is still growing up, the other is his son
Summary
Losing his tabloid reporting job at the same time his teenage son is expelled for writing a controversial essay, Sam Sullivan travels with his son to visit the boy's estranged grandfather during a shared weekend of self-discovery
