  • Title

    Geoff Dyer in conversation with Professor Josh Cohen

    Geoff Dyer will read from his work and reflect on the art of fiction.   

    Dyer is very funny, in both senses—sort of like a post-modern Kingsley  Amis. His  writing is acute and bad tempered in the great British tradition, and his prose is the equal of anyone in the country. A national treasure.’ (Zadie Smith)

     Geoff Dyer  is the author of four novels: Paris Trance, The Search, The Colour of Memory, and, most recently, Jeff in Venice, Death in Varanasi; two collections of essays, Anglo-English Attitudes and Working the Room; and five genre-defying titles: But Beautiful, The Missing of the Somme, Out of Sheer Rage, Yoga For People Who Can’t Be Bothered To Do It and The Ongoing Moment. A collection of essays from the last twenty years entitled Otherwise Known as the Human Condition was published in the US in April 2011 and won the National Book Critics Circle Award for Criticism. His most recent book is Zona, about Andrei Tarkovsky’s film Stalker (2012).
