About the Author

MARTIN SHEEN was born (and still is) Ramon Antonio Gerardo Estevez. Sheen's acting career includes roles in Badlands, Apocalypse Now, Wall Street and as President Josiah Barlett on television's The West Wing. A long-time activist for social justice and human rights, in 2008 he received the Laetare Award from the University of Notre Dame for his humanitarian work. EMILIO ESTEVEZ is an accomplished actor in his own right (The Outsiders, The Breakfast Club, St. Elmo's Fire)as well as a writer and director (The War At Home, Bobby). His work on The Way brought three generations of Estevez men together in the region of Spain where his grandfather was born. Born in New York City and raised in California, he is co-proprietor of two California vineyards.

Reviews

Actors Sheen and Estevez have written a thought-provoking book about fathers and sons, drawing from their own relationship. They describe their lives together in a candid, autobiographical way and, in doing so, explore the broader themes of fatherhood and family. Sheen, born Ramon Antonio Gerardo Estevez, describes his relationship with his own father, what it was like becoming a father of four at a very young age, and how his work as an actor affected his relationships with his family, particularly Estevez. The scenes describing his heavy drinking and heart attack on the set of Apocalypse Now and its effects on his relationship with Estevez are especially riveting. Estevez describes his relationship with Sheen, fathering two children at a young age, and the impact of his work as an actor, writer, and director on his family, particularly his father. Estevez shares his experiences filming the movie The Way together, which he wrote and directed and Sheen starred in. VERDICT Recommended for readers who like Hollywood biographies and stories of fathers and sons.-Sally Bryant, Pepperdine Univ. Lib., Malibu, CA (c) Copyright 2012.
