  • In Waves

    A passion for surfing unites the narratives in AJ Dungo's graphic novel memoir—from Hawaiians in the eighteen and nineteen-hundreds to Olympic swimmer Duke Kahanamoku and surfboard designer Tom Blake in the twentieth century, to his resilient girlfriend Kristin who is quietly dying of bone cancer. Dungo explores the history of surfing side-by-side with Kristin's history of recovery and relapse.
