Geoff Dyer is acclaimed for his genre-defying writing, crossing as it does both subject matter (war, film, jazz, photography, literature, travel) and style (criticism, creative non-fiction, commentary, journalism, fiction).
Artfully constructed stories, imbued with a fascinating intellect, make Dyer one of the most interesting writers in the UK today.
His latest work Zona (2012) takes as its starting point the 1970s Tarkovsky film Stalker and becomes a meditation on film, art and life.
He speaks with one of New Zealand’s own eclectic thinkers, Gregory O’Brien.
