Review

Uproarious, unclassifiable … he is assuredly among the funniest writers alive … a bohemian travel narrative as internal as any by Kerouac, told in language as aphoristic as Oscar Wilde’s - San Francisco Chronicle

Quite possibly the best living writer in Britain - Daily Telegraph

Cool, unclassifiable and very, very funny, Geoff Dyer's bestseller was described by William Sutcliffe as 'part string of stoner anecdotes, part memoir, part travelogue, part philosophical treatise, part comic tour-deforce...
If Hunter S Thompson, Roland Barthes, Paul Theroux and Sylvia Plath all went on holiday together in the same body, perhaps they could come up with something like it. This is the funniest book I have read for a very long time. My book of the year.'

Visiting Hull for the first time, Geoff Dyer is the ultimate counter-tourist with the ultimate counter-guide to life. Definitely off-beat, definitely clever, definitely silly. Unmissable.

Geoff Dyer is the author of three novels: Paris, Trance, The Search, The Colour of Memory; a critical study of John Berger, Ways of Telling; a collection of essays Anglo-English Attitudes; and four genre-defying titles: But Beautiful, The Missing of the Somme, Out of Sheer Rage and Yoga For People Who Can't Be Bothered to Do It. He has won many literary awards including a 2003 Lannan Literary Fellowship. Born in 1958, he lives in London.
