About this ebook

A gritty, real-life adventure of a young boy who grows into a troubled, yet functioning, man determined to forge a different path than his estranged father. A story of love and loss; life and death; perception and reality; and betrayal and forgiveness.

When five-year-old Axel Gearman’s parents divorce, he is made to tell his father he no longer wants to see him. Wanting to be a good boy, he obliges and spends the next several decades not seeing or knowing his dad. Now an adult, Axel has become a loving father and husband with a good job, a nice home, and some deep-seated issues. After receiving an unexpected phone call informing him of his father’s impending death, Axel makes a cross-country journey to reunite with him, settle his affairs and find closure.

Two Ways Out of Stockton provides a candid glimpse into the hard complexities of family and regret with a dash of humor. The musical and pop culture references bring life to the often relatable, and sometimes heartbreaking, moments throughout this touching memoir.
