The six stories in Tornado and Other Seasons peer at the delicate divide between social normalcy and individualism, between the logic of emotions and the unpredictability of life. The central theme of each story is caprice: the best-laid plans in an otherwise orderly day can take a sharp turn upon encountering a hitchhiker, a death in the family, or a sudden change in the weather.
