Geoff will be giving a public reading at UC Irvine, followed by a book signing. Geoff Dyer is widely considered one of the leading writers of his generation. According to the New York Times, “Mr. Dyer insouciantly mixes fiction and nonfiction, smuggling invented bits into the seams of his reported essays and stitching long threads of transparently autobiographical material into his novels.” The New York Review of Books writes, “This prowling and capricious nature has produced one of the strangest…

Geoff Dyer's Out of Sheer Rage, published in 1997, is a brilliant account of attempting to write, and most often failing, a book about his great hero D.H. Lawrence.

Hutton’s Where Eagles…
