Summary:

“Breathtaking....Crazy for the Storm will keep you up late into the night.”
—Washington Post Book World
 
Norman Olstead’s New York Times bestselling memoir Crazy for the Storm is the story of the harrowing plane crash the author miraculously survived at age eleven, framed by the moving tale of his complicated relationship with his charismatic, adrenaline-addicted father. Destined to stand with other classic true stories of man against nature—Into Thin Air and Into the Wild by Jon Krakauer; Sebastian Junger’s The Perfect Storm—it is a literary triumph that novelist Russell Banks (Affliction) calls, “A heart-stopping story beautifully told….Norman Olstead has written a book that may well be read for generations.”

Genres:

    This was an enjoyable book about a kid growing up in California in the 1960s. You may enjoy it more if you have a snow skiing and/or surfing background. Not too deep or intellectual.

  • Janet Christensen

    This is a very good coming of age true story that captures your interest to the very end. Narrated by the author you can hear the young boy in his voice. Definitely an enjoyable read.
