William Finnegan is a veteran staff writer for “The New Yorker” and author of four books. He reports on some very heavy subjects like human trafficking and organized crime. He likes to be on the road: “get outside, see new places, meet new people.” Here he talks candidly with Jamie Brisick about his lifelong love of surfing and his journalism with an excerpt from an upcoming memoir.
