Praise

The Surf Guru is one of the best collections I’ve read in years. Formally innovative, full of humor and terror and compassion in equal measure, and spanning an astonishing range of settings and characters, these stories renewed my faith in the short story as an art form. Dorst’s work is utterly unique and visionary.”
-Dan Chaon, author of Among the Missing and Await Your Reply

“The stories in The Surf Guru are unusual not just for the frequent genius of their conceits, but for the tremendous sympathy they demonstrate toward characters who struggle with love, loneliness, and disappointment. Doug Dorst writes with a big, unbridled imagination and a big, commiserating heart, and the results, by turns devastating and hilarious, are always deeply moving.”
-Chris Adrian, author of The Children’s Hospital and A Better Angel
