The Life PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

The Life free pdf "He looked into the Pacific and the Pacific looked back into him. Now bloated and paranoid, former champion surfer and legend Dennis Keith is holed up in a retirement village, shuffling to the shop for an ice lolly every day, barely existing behind his aviator sunnies and crazy OCD rules, and trying not to think about the waves he'd made his own and the breaks he once ruled like a god. Years before he'd been robbed of the world title that had his name on it - and then drugs, his family, and the disappearance of his girlfriend had done the rest. Out of the blue, a young would-be biographer comes knocking and stirs up memories he thought he'd buried. It takes Dennis a while to realise that she's not there to write his story at all. Funny, heartbreaking and humane, The Life confirms what the Literary Review has known all along - 'Knox is, quite simply, a fabulous writer.'"
