In this ingeniously meandering meditation, Geoff Dyer examines the later achievements of writers, artists, athletes and musicians, and relates them to his own experiences of life. It's a unique blend of memoir, criticism and reflection, always joyful and entertaining, always profound and thoughtful. A worthy and enjoyable addition to his important collection of work.
