Staff Reviews


Half the thrill of Barbarian Days lies in the pure adventure of youth, monster waves, hidden beaches, drugs in Indonesia; the other half is long-time New Yorker staff writer Finnegan’s exquisite, intelligent writing that unravels with depth and artistry. From his Hawaiian childhood to chasing waves on every continent, Finnegan recalls his climb into adulthood, journalism, and cultural awareness. A memoir even for non-memoir readers; a surfer’s tale even for the landlocked. Winner of the 2016 Pulitzer Prize for Biography.  

— Julia

This is a perfect summer nonfiction read for anytime you want an escape. Finnegan paints with vivid strokes the places and times that shaped his identity as a surfer, from Hawaii to Santa Cruz, to parts few of us will ever hear about, much less see. The passion of a surfer will keep you turning pages that exude salt air and the feel of the ocean beneath a board under your feet.

— Jocelyn
