  • Kaleidoscopic. Extraordinary. A frightening ride to the bottom of the soul of a man with a previously unexamined life. This is contemporary Hawaii as it's rarely evoked, with surfing strangely near its troubled heart

    William Finnegan, author of “Barbarian Days”, winner of the Pulitzer Prize
  • Theroux's new novel is a full-fat epic

    John Self, The Observer
  • Superb... Under the Wave at Waimea immerses you so elaborately in its watery world that you may start seeing surfing as just another guise for life itself... This probing tale of a man who's come undone and the strong, stark woman who thinks she can reassemble him is one of Theroux's best novels

    Michael Upchurch, The Seattle Times
