Geoff Dyerâs restless searchâfor what? is unclear, even to himâcontinues in this series of fascinating adventures and pilgrimages: with a tour guide who may not be a tour guide in the Forbidden City in Beijing; with friends in New Mexico, where D. H. Lawrence famously claimed to have had his âgreatest experience from the outside worldâ; with a hitchhiker picked up on the way from White Sands; with Don Cherry (or a photo of him, at any rate) at the Watts Towers in Los Angeles.
Weaving stories about places to which he has recently traveled with images and memories that have persisted since childhood, Dyer tries âto work out what a certain placeâa certain way of marking the landscapeâmeans; what itâs trying to tell us; what we go to it for.â
With 4 pages of full-color illustrations.
About: From âone of our most original writersâ (Kathryn Schulz, New York magazine) comes an expansive and exacting bookâfirmly grounded but elegant, often hilarious, and always inquisitiveâabout travel, unexpected awareness, and the questions we ask when we step outside ourselves.
