Editorial Reviews for this title:
Synopsis:
This isn’t a self-help book; it’s a book about how Geoff Dyer could do with a little help. In mordantly funny and thought-provoking prose, the author of Out of Sheer Rage describes a life most of us would love to live—and how that life frustrates and aggravates him.

As he travels from Amsterdam to Cambodia, Rome to Indonesia, Libya to Burning Man in the Black Rock Desert, Dyer flounders about in a sea of grievances, with fleeting moments of transcendental calm his only reward for living in a perpetual state of motion. But even as he recounts his side-splitting misadventures in each of these locales, Dyer is always able to sneak up and surprise you with insight into much more serious matters. Brilliantly riffing off our expectations of external and internal journeys, Dyer welcomes the reader as a companion, a fellow perambulator in search of something and nothing at the same time.

From the Inside Flap

Review:
“I have to say I was disappointed. Disappointed because this book was so funny, so effortlessly readable, so clear and wonderful that it meant that the brilliance of Out of Sheer Rage was not PURE DUMB LUCK.”
—Steve Martin

“What is the proper way to describe Geoff Dyer? Not deeply companionable, not viciously funny, not shockingly original, not effortlessly hip, not naively romantic, not wryly analytic, not endearingly foolish, not engagingly clever, but, perhaps, some as-yet-uninvented phrase which implies all these things at once.”
—Wendy Lesser,
author of Nothing Remains the Same

Geoff Dyer is the British anti-snob whose travel writing combines book-learning with withering self-appraisal and a great sense of the comic. He is also probably the only living writer engaged in a spiritual journey who would never proclaim it.
--Ted Conover
