Using spare, haunting imagery reminiscent of Cormac McCarthy’s novels, Tony Award–winning author William Hauptman spins a tale as mesmerizing as the giant skies that loom over the Texas plains. Burl Drennan’s life is unexceptional until, one day, he watches a gigantic twister roar through his small Panhandle town. From then on, he is a storm chaser. This quest will color every corner of his life and lead him to revelation in the light-ringed throat of a tornado. Download and start listening now!


Quotes & Awards

  • “I don’t think you have to live in dangerous territory to be pulled along through this novel’s fascinating meteorological or psychological vortex. Mr. Hauptman’s characters’ anger, their refusal to knuckle under to the diminution of their dreams, rings absolutely true.”

    New York Times Book Review

  • Storm Season is about family, the working class, the crimes human beings have committed against the land, and the hypnotic, redemptive quality of disaster—why human beings love being scared out of their socks. It’s spooky, beautiful, bizarre.”

    Los Angeles Times

  • “Engaging, unpretentious characters and idiosyncratic narrative make this an auspicious debut.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “This first novel by playwright and short story author Hauptman penetrates the heart and soul of a group  of long-haired, small-town losers. He handles their homely escapades with drugs, UFO sightings, and back-to-nature fantasies, as well as their worries about cancer and nuclear radiation, with dignity and sensitivity.”


  • “This one is a find, conveying mystery and hard-edged wonder while evoking a Texas that will be difficult for readers to forget.” Kirkus Reviews
