Wild Years tells us about an obsession, William Finnegan's with surfing. Finnegan started surfing as a child in Hawaii and California. In the seventies, after completing his university studies, his passion led him to leave everything behind and embark on an initiation journey through Samoa, Indonesia, Fiji, Java, Australia and South Africa. This precarious and unique journey, through increasingly wild lands, and in which he was on the verge of death several times, ended up taking him back to his country, where he would become a renowned writer and war correspondent. In the United States, despite his new job, his passion for waves remains intact: he continues his search for the perfect wave −the biggest, the fastest, the most dangerous− in San Francisco, the East Coast or Madeira. An incessant search that is also the search for the meaning of his existence. Winner of the 2016 Pulitzer Prize, Wild Years is a riveting adventure story and first-rate literary autobiography. It is also, and without any doubt, the best book on surfing that has ever been written.
