Review

Praise for French Girl with Mother



"Body Heat meets Swimming Pool with an injection of Patricia Highsmith." ―The Hollywood Reporter



“A unique, atmospheric literary thriller with a strong sense of place that will have appeal for fans of both Scandinavian crime fiction and psychological thrillers.” —Booklist



“Finely wrought; Ollestad builds a delicate tension between the characters, exposing their raw desire and exploring the concept of artistic inspiration...A quietly tense and absorbing read.”—Kirkus



Praise for Crazy for the Storm



"Riveting." —Entertainment Weekly



"Tragic and exotic ...[with] short, punchy chapters and...nonstop emphasis on adrenaline-fueled excitement." —Janet Maslin, The New York Times



"The memoir is as much about a father-son relationship as it is a survival story...Ollestad says his father's life philosophy about surfing and skiing - knowing there's always a place to go and find peace, clear your mind - got him down the mountain and through life." —USA Today



"An elegant memoir as well as a transformative coming-of-age tale. When he leaves his father's limp body behind on the icy plateau—giving it a final kiss and caress as it's claimed by the snow—Ollestad takes his first perilous steps not just into survival, but into adulthood." —New York Post



"Cinematic and personal . . . Ollestad's insights into growing up in a broken home and adolescence in southern California are as engrossing as the story of his trip down the mountain." —Chicago Tribune



"A page-turning adventure tale . . . and a meditation on manhood." —Los Angeles Magazine



"Breathtaking...A portrait of a father's consuming love for his son, Crazy for the Storm will keep you up late into the night." —Washington Post Book World



"At times beautiful, at times heart-wrenching, Crazy for the Storm is a commanding read--a tale that proves the power of the human spirit can rise against any challenge, and a father's legacy can be more than he imagines.” —BookPage




"Crazy for the Storm is a wonderful book, extremely moving and beautifully written in a spare yet richly evocative style.." —The Telegraph




"As much a thriller as a memoir . . . gorgeously written, perfectly controlled." —Carolyn See



"Crazy for the Storm is an absolutely compelling book which I read in one long sitting. The fact that it's true made me shudder, but then Norman Ollestad is a fine writer and every detail is convincing." —Jim Harrison




"A heart-stopping adventure that ends in tragedy and in triumph, a love story that fearlessly explores the bond between a father and son and what it means to lead a life without limits." —Susan Cheever
