1st Printing. Signed. 230 pages. Published in 2012. The author's book-length account on the film "Stalker". One of the best books on the art of film ever written in our time. The first appearance of the title in the United States. Precedes and should not be confused with all other subsequent editions. Published in a small and limited first print run as a hardcover original only. The First Edition is now scarce. Presents Geoff Dyer's account on Andrei Tarkovsky's cinematic masterpiece, "Zona", more popularly known as "Stalker". A challenging and (for many viewers) simply impenetrable re-invention of the science fiction genre, "Stalker" (1979) is one of the great Russian filmmaker's "touchstone" works. There are honorable critics who despise the film. And now, there is a great living novelist/critic who loves it so much he has devoted a 230-page book-essay on it. "Few books about film feel like watching a film. This one does. We sit with Dyer as he writes about 'Stalker'. He captures its mystery and burnish, he prises it open, and gets its majesty. As a result of this book, I know the film better, and care about Tarkovsky even more" (Mark Cousins). Just as Susan Sontag's "On Photography" (1977) does not contain a single photograph by way of illustration, there isn't a single image from the film itself (except for the DJ cover image of a girl reading a book, not exactly an iconic "Stalker" image) in Dyer's tour-de-force of a book. "Possibly the best living writer in Britain" (The Daily Telegraph). An absolute "must-have" title for Andrei Tarkovsky and Geoff Dyer collectors. This copy is very prominently and beautifully signed in black pen on the title page by Geoff Dyer. It is signed directly on the page itself, not on a tipped-in page. This title is a contemporary classic. This is one of very few such signed copies of the First American Edition/First Printing still available online and has no flaws, a pristine beauty. A scarce signed copy thus. Winner of the National Book Critics Cricle Award in 2012 for "Otherwise Known As The Human Condition". One of the greatest writers of our time. A flawless copy.
