Prodigal Father, Pagan Son
“A gritty memoir of life inside the Pagans Motorcycle Club, chief East Coast rivals to the Hells Angels”
“By the time he was thirteen, he already had attended thirteen funerals. Abandoned by his mother, and with
his father–the club’s notorious former president–in jail, “LT” Menginie was raised by the Pagans and became inducted into a life of sex, violence, drugs, and dysfunction. When his father was released from jail and betrayed the club by going over to the rival Hells Angels–helping to touch off Philadelphia’s “Biker War”–LT had to decide where his loyalties lay. “Prodigal Father, Pagan Son “is the perfect read for fans of the popular television drama “Sons of Anarchy,” and follows in the steps of Sonny Barger and other gripping insider accounts such as, “No Angel, Out in Bad Standings, “and “Under and Alone “by taking readers into the shocking and hypnotic under world of outlaw biker clubs.
