Synopses & Reviews
Sitting down to write a book on his hero D.H. Lawrence, the author becomes sidetracked continuously, resulting in this book - an account of his violent distaste for seafood, drug-induced erotic fantasies on a nudist beach in Mexico, and much more. A wry and comic study of the literary world and the pitfalls of writing. "If there was a prize for the year's funniest book then it would win hands down" "Independent On Sunday".
When he became interested in literature at grammar school, it was D.H. Lawrence who fired Geoff Dyer's imagination and provided the inspiration for him to become a writer. In this work, Dyer retraces Lawrence's journeys, learning much about both Lawrence and matters close to his own heart.
