The Middle East is thought of as "impossible" by many Americans. And that is exactly why Jesse Aizenstat set out to experience the area through surfing. In his new book, Aizenstat passes through some of the most combustible places along the Eastern Mediterranean, providing a good balance of journalism and gritty story-telling. It’s a humanizing, fresh look that by definition is loaded with surprises.
