Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Luke moves to Paris and, with his new love and the other expatriate couple from whom they become inseparable, wanders the Eleventh Arrondissement where clubs, cafés, banter, and ecstasy now occupy Gertrude Stein's city "which is not real but is really there."

In Paris Trance, Geoff Dyer fixes a dream of happiness — and its aftermath — with photographic precision. Boldly erotic and hauntingly elegiac, comic and romantic, this brilliant reconception of the classic expatriate novels of the Lost Generation confirms Dyer as one of our most original and talented writers.

Review:

"Sexy, hopelessly romantic, and almost sneakily meditative, Dyer's novel invokes the shades of Hemingway and Fitzgerald, but as they might be imagined by Truffaut." The New Yorker

Review:

"There is a delicacy and a charm — and, of course, a humor — to Dyer's account...that brings the '20s and the '90s together in a decisive unison." Los Angeles Times

Review:

"Intriguing, absorbing, and darkly romantic...[a] reamarkable novel." San Francisco Chronicle
