Geoff Dyer

Geoff Dyer

Geoff Dyer is an English author of four novels and numerous non-fiction books, visiting Kapittel for the first time.

Garan Holcombe of The British Council describes Dyer thus: "In a world in which labelling, categorising and pigeon-holing are obsessive pursuits [...] Geoff Dyer is troublesome."
Nevertheless, since his debut in 1986, Dyer has published extensively and won critical acclaim and many literary awards for his work. His work is characterized as original, witty, and above all intelligent.

His most recent book was published last year, Broadsword Calling Danny Boy: On Where Eagles Dare, where Dyer takes a contemporary look at the cult-film Where Eagles Dare from 1968.
Other works include Out of Sheer Rage: In the Shadow of D. H. Lawrence (1997) about, among other subject, the author D. H. Lawrence, and Yoga For People Who Can't Be Bothered To Do It (2003), dipping into the genre travel-literature. Jeff in Venice, Death in Varanasi (2009) follows a journalist reporting from the art biennale in Venice, and writing a travel-piece from Varanasi.

Dyers work has been translated into 24 languages.
