What’s the biggest challenge facing a self-absorbed,
party-hearty rock superstar? If you are thinking alcoholism,
drug addiction, arrests, divorce, or financial ruin, think
again. The greatest struggle of all is the one a rocker
fortunate enough to survive those gauntlets must eventually
meet: the troublesome trials and tribulations of aging publicly
and the selflessness it takes to become a grandfather for the
Grand Pop, author
Rand Bishop tickles your funny bone and touches your heart with
this spot-on account of growing older in a youth-obsessed
culture. As vain, egocentric Keefe Taylor turns the heavy-metal
calendar page of 50, he stumbles unwarily onto a road of
personal redemption. Will Keefe finally recognize that life’s
most precious gifts—love, friendship, and family—have been
absent from his life? And once he figures that out, will he have
the courage and persistence to go after them . . . and hang on
to them? Grand Pop
is a darkly humorous, yet enriching and engrossing mock-memoir
about one man’s evolution from living in arrested adolescence to
becoming a healthy, loving, and stable father and grandfather.
Don’t miss this opportunity to grow up with Keefe Taylor. He has
powerful and poignant lessons to
teach us and
a belly full of laughter to share.
