BEACH BOY: The idea behind “Beaches” (Abrams) came to Gray Malin in 2011 during a weekend getaway with friends. “Our hotel room happened to be 20 stories above a giant swimming pool,” he writes in the book. “As I looked directly down on the crowded scene of sunbathers below, my head began to spin as I observed the bright colors, repetitive shapes and playful elements of this inviting perspective.”
