There's a line in Jimmy Buffett's song "Hurricane Season" that closely resembles the plot of DiStasio's novel: "It cleans me out, and then I can go home." The setting for this story is Key West (where, incidentally, Buffett used to live), and the time frame is one particularly rough hurricane season. DiStasio's understanding of human nature allows him to create interesting characters, and he throws a great deal of conflict their way in the form of turbulent relationships and a few nasty storms. It's a satisfying, intelligent read.

Facing the Furies tosses the reader through furies of Mother Nature, and furies of the human condition. DiStasio's capacious command of language and imagery create characters that evoke an emotional response from the reader. Facing the Furies, as fast-paced as a storm, is a story of a fight for survival.

Daniel DiStasio has created a masterpiece with Facing The Furies! The way he interwove the turmoil in the characters' lives with each of the storms was brilliant. He sugar-coats nothing. His characters were all believable and he made you care what happened to each of them, even the drug dealer JoBe, who deeply loved those in his private world, especially his beloved and wise grandmother Opal. Having lived in Key West and Bahama Village where most of the story takes place, and having seen the devastation of the five storms of 2005, this book brought it all back, as DiStasio depicted them accurately, down to the unbelievable flooding when the Gulf of Mexico met the Atlantic Ocean! No one outside of Key West heard much about that, but too many friends lost their homes and almost their lives when the flood washed over the island. DiStasio captured it all! If this is an example of what we can expect from him, I can't wait to read the next one!
