Written and published within a month of the worst storm to ever hit the New Jersey-New York area, Superstorm Sandy: A Diary in the Dark is a first-person account of one New Jersey resident's 12 days without power or heat in his North Jersey home.
The author, William Westhoven, an award-winning New Jersey journalist and author, mixes personal drama and observations with fact-based reporting and a liberal dose of "you have to laugh or you'll cry" humor. His quick work has resulted in the first book to document the arrival of Superstorm Sandy and the immediate recovery period that followed.
Written as a fund-raising vehicle, the author pledges to donate all paid royalties from this book to the nonprofit Hurricane Sandy New Jersey Relief Fund.
Light, dark, dramatic, funny, a fun quick read for a good cause. A realistic study of a comfortable life lost to the wind.
