This is how Geoff Dyer writes: as if he is a friend filling you in on "Then a hustler with wayward and unkempt eyes accosted us. "D'you speak English?" he wanted to know. I can see how this book would annoy some. It is incredibly self-indulgent, as Dyer writes with surprising honesty about his sexual conquests and drug adventures, all the while complaining about how boring it is to be a writer, traveling, with nothing to do but drugs and women. Unlike George Saunders, who, in"The Braindead Megaphone", writes travel sketches that reach out and yearn to understand others and improve the world, Dyer looks inward and yearns to understand the complex mess that is himself.

Reading this book made me want to read other books by the same author. 2 people found this helpful. Seriously, how hard it is to proofread an e-book and check it's the same as the paper book.

Geoff Dyer had always wanted to write a book about D. H. Lawrence. Drawing on photos, anecdotes, and, most important, the way he hears the music, Dyer imaginatively reconstructs scenes from the embattled live. The Missing of the Somme. He wanted, in fact, to write his "Lawrence book. The problem was, he had no idea what his "Lawrence book" would be, though he was determined to write a "sober academic study. Luckily for. Selected Essays. by John Berger · Geoff Dyer.
Summary: From Amsterdam to Cambodia, from Rome to Indonesia, from New Orleans to Libya, and from Detroit to Ko Pha-Ngan, Geoff Dyer finds himself both floundering about in a sea of grievances and finding moments of transcendental calm. This aberrant quest for peak experiences leads, ultimately, to the Black Rock Desert in Nevada, where, to quote Tarkovsky's Stalker, 'your most cherished desire will come true'.
Dyer himself "just liked it as a title"
Dyer himself "just liked it as a title". The New Yorker has said of the English-born Dyer that he's "a restless polymath and an irresistibly funny storyteller, adept at fiction, essay, and reportage, but happiest when twisting all three into something entirely his own".

The upper right hand corner of the back cover says Travel/Memoir. I suppose this is accurate, but it’s less about the travels and more about numerous journeys over ten years pursuing nothing in particular. Is the book describing a journey home, or is it merely a collection of travel stories? Dyer’s travels to different places in the world include a lot of things: humor, truths, great dialogue, snippets of poetry and philosophy. As all good travelers know, it is the ugliness, the unexpected, the inconvenient that make the best and the funniest travel stories.
When I read Yoga for People Who Can’t Be Bothered to Do It five years ago, it was a revelatory experience. Indeed, it had such an impact on me that it inaugurated a seriously rocky period in my relationship with my then-fiancée, almost convincing me to call the whole thing off and travel the world alone. I thought for a moment about Lawrence Osborne, who I have always sort of compared to Dyer, at least to the extent that both writers transmute their experiences on the road into literature.
