In his latest book, Geoff Dyer turns his well-honed wit and sharp-edged wisdom to the consideration of endings. Taking a closer look at endings of significant events in life, and even life itself, Dyer in conversation with Sameer Pandya, assistant professor in the Department of Asian American Studies at the University of California, Santa Barbara, examines the achievements of writers, painters, musicians, and athletes that have meant something to him as he approaches “late middle age.” With his signature playful charm and penetrating intelligence, he considers the intensifications and modifications of experience that come when an ending is within sight, and moves us seamlessly from the brush strokes of J. M. W. Turner to the tennis strokes of Roger Federer.

This book on last things, written while life as we know it seemed to be coming to an end, is at heart, a tale about how to go on living with art and beauty.
