"Is there a genre for surf science fiction? San Francisco’s Michael Mazza may have just invented it."
— The Mercury News
“That Crazy Perfect Someday is a stunningly confident debut novel, as agile, quick, and sure-footed as its protagonist. Its narrative surprises hit like rogue waves but feel inevitable in retrospect, expressions of this book’s unique physics. The surfing scenes are among the best I’ve ever read and the vivid and richly imagined detail calls to mind the work of Adam Johnson and T.C. Boyle. Mafuri is one of those rare characters to whom you’ll have trouble saying goodbye when the pages run out.”
— Doug Dorst, New York Times bestselling novelist, coauthor of S.
"Michael Mazza has written an unforgettable tale about a young woman surfer. Whatever her complicated life throws at her—sharks, envious competitors, near death experiences—she dives into headfirst. She is fierce, independent, a wiseass, and still searching for where she belongs. I don’t surf, I don’t even know how to swim, but I would follow this young woman anywhere."
—Diana Wagman, author of The Care and Feeding of Exotic Pets
"[This] debut novel rips through the near future…powered by the megawatt voice of Mafuri Long, a spritely surfer babe from Generation Z whose epic wave crests through this tale."
— Kirkus Reviews
"Mazza is one of the quickest, most creative minds I've ever come across. Every idea he comes up with is worth paying attention to."
