The book

Wonderkid

A delirious and touching novel of fathers and sons, the dangers of compromise and thwarted ambition, told with humor and energy by a writer as comfortable in a rock club as a bookstore. A backstage epic of sex, drugs, and rock and roll, but also sippy cups, pillow fights, and Baby Bjorns, Wonderkid is Almost Famous through the looking glass.
