Hong Kong International Literary Festival: Geoff Dyer – Where? What? Where?
November 3 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
In his essay collection White Sands, Geoff Dyer spins dazzling travelogues out of the least likely places on earth. From desolate desert landscapes to the “hellhole” of Norway’s Arctic reaches, “the less promising his subject, the more brilliant Dyer gets” (Guardian).
In this talk moderated by Jeffrey Mather, Dyer will speak about travel writing, his famous disregard for the line between fiction and non-fiction and the alchemy by which he turns dull and disappointing subjects into literary treasure.
