Editorial Reviews

Review

This is classic Dyer territory - an extended, near-formless work of art. (Word Magazine)

Zona is penned with great linguistic flair, in a non-academic, conversational tone... It turns Zona from film criticism into a stranger, more amusing study and the section on why their journey is like the journey of writing a book is both intellectually neat and rather touching. (Independent on Sunday)

Doesn't so much inject fun into the film's eerie Soviet glamour as find comedy in the gulf between us and our objects of desire (Boyd Tonkin Independent)

Dyer, ever the postmodernist, thrives on the futility of his critical mission...and he duly unleashes a battle between footnotes and central text, relentlessly peppering his Tarkovskian plot pr�cis with beautiful biographical notes. (The Times)

This is a rigorous book, and one that celebrates properly a lifelong devotion to an artistic masterpiece. But it is also entertaining. As such, it is almost revolutionary in form. (Financial Times)

Perennially readable and wonderfully difficult to second-guess (Bookseller)

[Geoff Dyer] can be laugh out loud funny...[Zona] is a work which generates meanings rather than exhausts them by specificity. The loveliness of Dyer's book is that he could write it again in a decade and it would be different again. (Scotland on Sunday)

[Geoff Dyer] shows how writing about film can deliver a sense of adventure. His book offers the satisfaction of a meditation that inhales a much larger world (Nick James Sight and Sound)

One of my favourite of all contemporary writers. (Alain de Botton)

An investigation into everything from faith to knapsacks. Therapy for Dyer, bliss for the reader (The Daily Telegraph) --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
