Summary
Just north of the border, in the tired coastal town of Imperial Beach, California, live three generations of Yosts: surfing royalty turned society misfits. The Yosts' reign and reputation, once defined in the curl of a perfect wave, has been eroded by years of bad luck, addiction and hubris. But just as things are looking like they can't get worse, a stranger named John arrives-- and the Yosts' banal existence is lifted into something profound, miraculous and, possibly, universal
