In his latest book, Geoff Dyer returns to his favourite subject - himself. In his very distinctive, neurotic, and quirkily humorous voice that has gained him a passionate fan base including Bryan Ferry and Steve Martin, Dyer writes about an accumulation of his experiences as a traveller, from the extraordinary Burning Man festival in the Nevada desert to getting drastically stoned in Paris; from contemplating the great Roman site Leptis Magna in Libya to the downright weirdness of decrepit Detroit. He is both confessional - entertainingly frank about trying to pick up women in Thailand - and very thoughtful - wondering how the power of a particular place such as the Buddha in Si Satchanlai, Thailand, can work on a non-believer. YOGA FOR PEOPLE WHO CAN'T BE BOTHERED TO DO IT confirms Geoff Dyer as 'among the most original and talented writers of his generation'
