Product Description

Collects twenty-five years of essays and misadventures. Here, Dyer is pursuing the shadow of Camus in Algeria and remembering life on the dole in Brixton in the 1980s; reflecting on Richard Avedon and Ruth Orkin, on the sculptor Zadkine and the saxophonist David Murray (in the same essay), on his heroes Rebecca West and Ryszard Kapuscinksi, on haute couture and sex in hotels. For Dyer there is no division between the reflective work of the critic and the novelist’s commitment to lived experience: they are mutually illuminating way to sharpen our perceptions. Sixty-three pieces are dispersed into five groupings; Visuals, Verbals, Musicals, Variables, Personals. Sources & Acknowledgments; List of Illustrations. 22 B&W illus. 424p.
