Abstract:

Burl Drennan has lived most of his life in Nortex, Texas, at an undistinguished railroad town that sits in an area of violent storms and tornadoes. Burl has no particular ambition until, one day, an enormous twister roars through town. As Burl drives toward safety, the huge funnel follows him.

And it will lead him to revelations in the light-ringed throat of a tornado.
