Brainstorm narrates a cerebral aneurysm in the immediate family and the onslaught of trauma, non-communication and overwhelming legality. Brainstorm follows a conscientious couple seeking participation in the process, to no avail.
Writing from experience, Wintner combines decades on the high seas and below the surface with a literary style honed to efficiency. “Sometimes events in our lives bear striking similarities, like banking into a curve at eighty, or kissing my wife minutes before brain surgery,” says Wintner. “I wonder if I’m over my head, hope I’m not, and proceed as if I can get through this.”
Robert Wintner is Snorkel Bob, Hawaii’s largest reef outfitter, and has written fifteen books, including Pulitzer-nominated In Sweet Magnolia Time and two movie-optioned novels, The Modern Outlaws and Whirlaway.
