Brooklyn by the Book: Geoff Dyer
From one of our most original writers (Kathryn Schulz, New York magazine) comes an expansive and exacting bookfirmly grounded, but elegant, witty, and always inquisitiveabout travel, unexpected awareness, and the questions we ask when we step outside ourselves. Geoff Dyers restless searchfor what? is unclear, even to himcontinues in this series of fascinating adventures and pilgrimages: with a tour guide who is in fact not a tour guide at the Forbidden City in Beijing, with friends in New Mexico, where D. H. Lawrence famously claimed to have had the greatest experience from the outdoor world, with a hitchhiker picked up near a prison at White Sands, with Don Cherry (or a photo of him, at any rate) at the Watts Towers in Los Angeles.

Weaving stories about places to which he has recently traveled with images and memories that have persisted since childhood, Dyer tries to work out what a certain placea certain way of marking the landscapemeans; what its trying to tell us; what we go to it for.
