This memoir retraces Ren 's footsteps through America, Europe, the Mediterranean, and the Middle East over the course of fifty years. His journey pays particular tribute to his relationship with his father, referred to as Pop-a talented filmmaker, pianist, and writer. Ren candidly discusses coming to grips with his father's slow descent into alcoholism, a disease that eventually played a role in Pop's untimely death. Part memoir and part travelogue, Like Pop, Like Schling is at times tragic, adventurous, and nostalgic. It is ultimately a story of hope as Ren encourages those struggling with substance abuse to have the mettle to change their lives and to conquer their demons before the demons conquer them.
