A former managing editor of GQ and a critically acclaimed fine artist, Philip Smith shares his coming-of-age story—one that is quite extraordinary. His father, Lew Smith, the go-to interior decorator for Miami’s rich and famous in the 1960s and ‘70s, discovers that he can heal the sick and speak with the dead, which sends his family down an unexpected and unusual path. This is a story about growing up different and learning to accept yourself and the provocative dimensions of a unique and wondrous life experience.
