If you are looking for a truly unique read, Crazy by William Peter Blatty is the book for you! Joey El Bruno, the narrator and now resident of Bellevue Hospital takes the reader back to the New York of 1941, when he first meets an exceptional girl named Jane, and begins to experience time shifts. Throughout the slim novel Joey explains his unusual encounters with Jane, who has an uncanny ability to show up during Joey’s most morally trying times. She always brings with her cryptic advice and knowledge of the future. At times the reader will speculate about Joey’s grasp on reality, until at last, as an old man revisiting his past, the riddle of Jane is solved. While it might not seem like a “Christmas Read,” Crazy is in fact a perfect story for the holiday season, one that will most likely be revisited by readers time and again.
