The last thing Piedro remembers is diving into the lake on his day
off from work. Now he lies in a hospital bed with a wheelchair at
his side. Casting a shadow from the doorway, his caretaker remarks
on "how quickly one gets used to this kind of thing," as she goes
on to empty his catheter bag and to help him into his wheelchair.
Piedro must now deal with a growing mix of fear and powerlessness
that surges within him as he realizes that he will be paralyzed
forever; it bursts forth like a twister, "over and over again,"
until he resigns himself to it. In time, Piedro's feelings of
hopelessness are offset by the realization that he can find both
love and a degree of independence. With the support of his family
and friends, he makes his way through rehab and finally gets back
to the business of living. Based on his own experiences, Roland
Burkart's Twister is a realistic and uplifting narrative that will
resonate with anyone who has ever experienced or borne witness to a
life upended by calamity.
