Read from November 28 to December 15, 2011

A mix of essays on photography, literature and his personal life, with many great moments. Reading it was almost like reading a memoir, you come away from it feeling like you understand a bit what makes Geoff Dyer tick, what his life experiences have been, and what he's obsessed with (WWII aviation, Doughnut Plant donuts, Burning Man, sex, etc).

But it might be best read intermittently rather than all at once. Some essays were definitely skippable, other bear re-reading.

Hoping he writes another novel soon!
