From the author of "Alive in Necropolis" "a brazen, roiling, confident collection." ("Los Angeles Times"). This is a book of brilliant, adventurous stories from award-winning author Doug Dorst, widely celebrated as one of the most creative, original literary voices of his generation-an heir to T.C. Boyle and Denis Johnson, or a Northern Californian Haruki Murakami. Here in "The Surf Guru," Dorst's full talent is on display.
