Barbarian Days A Surfing Life is the subtitle than the title that is a surfing life To break it down further it is life than surfing as it follows William Finnegan from youngest years to the present day from continent to continent from schools to jobs from here to eternity Is there a lot of surfing in that life Yes Is there a lot of life maybe too much life in this book Yes againMeaning I felt that 464 pages was a bit much Surprising considering Finnegan is a New Yorker writer that is if you subscribe to the notion that journalists than novelists are likely to stay on point and cut to the narrative bone There are enjoyable descriptions of the ocean and the surfers who like to ride it spread throughout the book There are also lulls where I kept looking deep for incoming swellsAdmittedly I may not be the best judge I have never surfed in my life Thus I came to the book with romanticized notions about surfing and hoped for lyrical passages you d expect from a real writer s writer You know Hemingway Hangs Ten But really it was matter of fact Well written yes Just overwritten content wise In need of the famous editor Maxwell Perkins maybe That said if you are interested in the autobiography of a New Yorker writer whose greatest love has been surfing almost 500 pages worth you ll likely enjoy this journalist s tale At least his life is exciting than most certainly exciting and accomplished than mine Hat s off and hang ten then

Barbarian Days Download ô 106 Read & download ´ PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB Ú William Finnegan Ano A venticinue anni il suo sogno è di rigenerarsi agli Antipodi e vedere il mondo prima che si trasformi tutto in Los Angeles Inizia così «la ricerca» il viaggio dell’Inverno senza fine la circumnavigazione del globo a caccia di onde Prima Guam poi le isole Samoa il regno di Tonga l’arcipelago delle Figi dove scopre il magnifico break di Tavarua davanti a un lembo di terra assente perfino dalle mappe Al suo fianco c’è Bryan che è andato al funerale di Kerouac e fa surf «come se non ci fosse un domani» Ultima tappa il Sud. Let s get this out of the way I don t know how to surf I ve never been to Hawaii and what little I do know of surfing was gleaned from watching cheesy movies like 1991 s Point Break and 1987 s North Shore To wit I am not the ideal audience for this memoir about a surfing life And yet I really enjoyed this bookFor starters it has some seriously gorgeous prose William Finnegan writes for The New Yorker and he won a Pulitzer Prize for Barbarian Days which is how it came to my attention The memoir chronicles Finnegan s childhood spent in California and Hawaii his stories of learning how to surf making friends and enemies among the local gangs and eventually of his adventures traveling around the world looking for great surfing spots My favorite stories in the book were about his dangerous surf outings I lost track of how many times he nearly died of his travels with various friends and girlfriends and of how he tries to balance his surfing obsession with being an adult who has a job and a family Surfers never grow old it seemsIf you like audiobooks I highly recommend Finnegan s narration He has a beautiful deep voice that is perfect for storytelling His voice reminded me of the actor John Slattery kinda dreamy This is a great ride of a bookFavorite uoteBut surfing always had this horizon this fear line that made it different from other things certainly from other sports I knew You could do it with friends but when the waves got big or you got into trouble there never seemed to be anyone around Everything out there was disturbingly laced with everything else Waves were the playing field They were the goal They were the object of your deepest desire and adoration At the same time they were your adversary your nemesis even your mortal enemy The surf was your refuge your happy hiding place but it was also a hostile wilderness a dynamic indifferent world At thirteen I had mostly stopped believing in God but that was a new development and it had left a hole in my world a feeling that I d been abandoned The ocean was like an uncaring God endlessly dangerous power beyond measure
