In tone and description, Ziolkowski perfected the surf memoir (he may have also founded it)—so much so that readers of On a Wave might do a double take when they see the cover of his first novel in bookstores this week published by Europa editions. The unmistakable spiral of a tornado rises above the title Wichita. That's a long, long way from Melbourne Beach, Florida.
