Robert Wintner has two new memoirs reflecting common values and lingering influence.
His novels and reef photography books are widely reviewed, and he is also Hawaii’s largest reef outfitter.
1969 & Then Some is a Grand Tour of a Golden Age: Motorcycles, Romance gave Vision to the Meaning of War
Brainstorm is a Memoir of Cerebral Aneurysm—and a Crash Course in Coping with Non-communication in today’s Medical Complex
Robert Wintner’s new memoirs are 1969 and Then Some: A Memoir of Romance, Motorcycles, and Lingering Flashbacks of the Golden Age and Brainstorm: A Memoir of Love, Devotion, and Cerebral Aneurysm (Yucca Publishing).
1969 and Then Some is a Grand Tour for youth who became decision makers of today. Wintner puts perspective on a dynamic era, as the decades unfold with lingering influence—and continuing romance, motorcycles and the values that define us.
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.
