From his oceanfront balcony, an old surfing-champion-turned-surf-wear-entrepreneur watches a new generation of surfers come of age on the waves; a frustrated campaign manager is enlisted to make her foolish candidate shine, with outrageously tragic results; an acid-tongued botanist exiled from the academy composes a series of scurrilous biographical sketches of his rivals, inadvertently revealing his own story; a pair of boyhood friends playing with fireworks set off a series of unanticipated events; and two twenty-first-century drifters course through the book, struggling toward a dream of hitting the Pacific, and, like all of Dorst's characters, pushing on into the unexpected, taking us someplace new.
