Publishers Weekly review of THE SKI JUMPERS

A writer and former ski jumper facing a terminal diagnosis takes one more leap—into a past of soaring flights and broken family bonds

The delicate balance of family dynamics and the unshakable grip that the past holds on the present are center stage in the heartfelt latest from Geye (Safety from the Sea). Several decades after 60-something Jon Bargaard gave up the danger and the exhilaration of ski jumping, he relives his memories of the sport and of his early life, spurred by a diagnosis of younger-onset Alzheimer’s... By moving back and forth in time, Geye gradually brings clarity to Jon’s past.
