Product Description

The Thompson family cannot avoid Old Norm. He is wealthy, brash, insulting, and occasionally ostentatiously generous. Most people ignore his conduct. The Thompsons cannot. The story winds its way through war, a wedding, a funeral, an out-of-the-way tavern, a small college, and an undiscovered crime. The family's youngest son narrates. As he matures, he watches family members contend with Old Norm's persistent insolence, while he learns that people are connected in ways that are hard to imagine. ""This wonderful story reminds us of how community happens through the curious and mundane intersections of our daily lives and the quirky personalities we encounter. Indeed, even cranky misfits are necessary neighbors for learning the truths of what it means to be human. Tim Brown writes with wit and wisdom."" --Eric Garbison, Kansas City, Missouri ""Old Norm is full of memorable characters living in a small Nebraska town. As their lives unfold, we see how the sometimes-uncomfortable connection between neighbors can be something to celebrate. It is a story that invites reflection. It is a story well told. Highly recommended."" --John Gilfillan, Boulder, Colorado ""Old Norm is a true pleasure to read. Tim Brown has created a compelling narrative that delivers precious insights into what is true and what is important. Family, community, and the ability to adjust to adverse circumstances top the list. An exceptional story skillfully told."" --Allen Spore, Photographer, Walnut Creek, California ""Love thy neighbor. Old Norm teaches us to love even the hard to love. Don't miss the opportunity to be enriched by this gem of a book, which is full of truisms to treasure."" --Lori Triplett, Author, Overland Park, Kansas Tim Brown learned the value of words as an advertising copywriter and creative director. He holds a bachelor's degree in journalism and a master's degree in mass communications. Between degrees he served as an army journalist in South Vietnam. This is his first work of fiction, and reflects his understanding of small-town life and of how tough personalities and strained relationships can become valuable threads in the fabric of a supportive community.
