This collection sees the best of Geoff Dyer's extensive essays and journalism from the last ten years collected in one book. It follows Anglo-English Attitudes, his last collected essays from 1999. Characterised by Dyer's trademark wit, playfulness and understated intelligence, his writing on art, literature and travel has appeared in publications from the Guardian to GQ, Harpers and Queen to The New Yorker. This lively anthology roves from the photography of Martin Parr to the paintings of Turner, the writing of Scott-Fitzgerald to the criticism of Susan Sontag. There are also extensive personal pieces, 'On Being an Only Child', 'Sex and Hotels' and lecture 'On Punctuality'.
