Can a man live and love intensely without being crushed under the weight of his feelings? Like Milan Kundera's The Unbearable Lightness of Being, debut author Norman Ollestad's Driftwood plumbs the agony and ecstasy of pursuing romantic love. Abandoned by his wife after quitting his job as an attorney, Woody lives in a beach shack with his Labrador retriever Coltrane–his spiritual advisor and the colorful narrator of Driftwood. Woody’s carefree life of riding the transcendent California waves turns tumultuous when he investigates a mysterious theft on the beach and soon finds himself entangled with two different women–effervescent Anna, and the artfully seductive Ingrid. Through Coltrane’s witty voice, we are taken on a spiritual and psychological journey across mythic, sun-soaked Malibu. Can Woody solve the crime and satisfy his heart? Insightful and profound, Driftwood is a California classic for anyone who has ever lost love and hopes to find it again.
