Returning: A Spiritual Journey

Cover
Beacon Press, 1997 - 250 Seiten
Dan Wakefield was a successful writer of novels, nonfiction, and screenplays when he awoke to a private life that was disintegrating in alcohol, depression, and isolation. He fled Hollywood for Boston where he reclaimed a faith he had thought he was too sophisticated to embrace. In this moving memoir, Wakefield returns to his religious roots and his early life- his Indiana boyhood, his tumultuous student days, and his growth as a writer.
