Product description


"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
