Reviews

"For a generation of backpackers now gone gray, the tattered paperback accounts of [Paul Theroux's] treks through China, Africa and South America were a prod to adventure, bibles of inspiration under many a mosquito net."
--Gal Beckerman for the New York Times"Incantatory, ecstatic, hypnotic...One of Theroux's best novels."
--Seattle Times"Immersive...[Theroux's] fans will appreciate the perfectly rendered exotic setting, which takes the reader deep inside the Hawaiian surf culture."
--Publishers Weekly

"Devotees of Kem Nunn's Tapping the Source who have been searching for the next great surfing novel need search no more. In flowing, lyrical prose, Theroux celebrates the sheer individualistic exhilaration of riding waves."
--Booklist, starred review

"Extraordinary. A frightening ride to the bottom of the soul of a man with a previously unexamined life. This is contemporary Hawaii as it's rarely evoked, with surfing strangely near its troubled heart."
--William Finnegan, author of Barbarian Days, winner of the Pulitzer Prize
