Zona: A Book about a Film about a Journey to a Room by Geoff Dyer
Zona: A Book about a Film about a Journey to a Room

Alee Karim, August 5, 2012

I adored this book and breezed through it in about a day. It was a blessing of a read after spending months plowing through 2666--that book demanded a chunk of my soul. ZONA is in fact quite a lot more generous than both 2666 and its subject, Tarkovsky's (not as) inscrutable (as you think) STALKER.

Dyer drops minor epiphanies like it's his job and really makes the work of criticism appear joyful. There's no need to spoil what's in here and if you're even mildly interested in the topic, this is well worth the read.
