​A non-fiction comical masterpiece!


Native New Yorker Emmanuel Sheafe captures the wacky insanity of growing up African American in the Big Apple in the 1970’s. THE PRODIGAL SON & THE UNUSUAL SUSPECTS is a start to finish Laugh-Out-Loud-Tale that can be summarized in 4 words, “Scandalous escapades & outrageous exploits!’

All hell breaks loose with the zany cast of characters. Guys like the school narcotics dealer. While making barbecue spareribs for the annual church picnic his parole officer unexpectedly shows up at his house. He panics and makes a split-second decision to dispose of his weekly allocation of merchandise by pouring two ounces of marijuana, an eighth of a kilo of cocaine, 30 mg. of methamphetamine and a handful of fentanyl into the barbecue sauce. During the sermon the following Sunday, the pastor spent over an hour complimenting, “The tremendous barbecue that Brother Abdullah made at the picnic…he was touched by the Divine Hand of God!” to shouts of “Amen” “Praise Jesus” and “Oh Hallelujah” from all over the sanctuary. Abdullah walks around royally pissed for about a year. He said, “Them Muth%^$&^ing intoxicated saints better not complain, those were $10,000 ribs.”

If you love to laugh, this is a must read non-fiction adventure. Between the covers of this book lurk these and dozens of utterly unforgettable, hilarious, sidesplitting and pandemonium-causing characters.
