About-

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.”
