Geoff Dyer - Zona

Author : Geoff Dyer
Publisher : The Text Publishing Company

Description : Geoff Dyer, described by the Daily Telegraph as ‘possibly the best living writer in Britain’, takes on his biggest challenge yet: unlocking the film that has obsessed him all his adult life.Magnificently unpredictable and hilarious (and surely one of the most unusual books ever written about cinema), Zona takes the reader on an enthralling, thought-provoking journey.
The ostensible subject of Zona is the film Stalker, by the great Russian director Andrei Tarkovsky. As Dyer immerses us in the movie, it becomes apparent that Stalker is only the point of departure for a wonderfully digressive exploration of cinema, of how we understand our obsessions and of how we try to realise – and, discover – our deepest wishes.
‘An impassioned, yet acerbic and wittyappraisal of a screen classic is a work of art in its own rights.’ Scotland on Sunday
