Product Details

Praise

“Surpassingly eloquent. . . . There’s no other writer quite like [Dyer].” —Time

“Perhaps the most brilliantly original practitioner of his generation… I here and now acknowledge the work of Geoff Dyer, once and for all, to be forgivable cause for any writer’s jealousy.” —Jan Morris, The Spectator

“Entertaining and thought provoking.” —The Times Literary Supplement
 
“Reading Dyer is like taking a trip around the world with your best-read, wittiest, most interesting friend.” —O, The Oprah Magazine
 
“A rumination on the meanings we assign the strange destinations of our pilgrimages. . . . [Dyer is] a neurotic Siddhartha, forever going on hopeful pilgrimages that wind up leaving him disappointed and hollow, the brunt of a much larger cosmic joke.” —The New York Times
