Reviews

"Like its subjects, the book is sharp and witty. . . . [Dyer] fans will enjoy reading about the characters' obsessions (such as jazz, film, and photography), as well as Dyer's thoughtful and absorbing digressions." --Publishers Weekly "Of all the hyped novels of 1980s London, it remains one of the most genuine." --New Statesman "Dyer writes crisp, Martin Amis-inflected prose, full of acute perceptions and neat phrases . . . The book abounds in colourful descriptions of familiar aspects of London life." --The Times Literary Supplement "The great thing about [The Colour of Memory] is its tone, which is neither snide nor wistful, but sharply contemplative, with the typical (and typically pleasing) Dyer humor underlying it all." --The Threepenny Review Like its subjects, the book is sharp and witty. . . .
