Reviews

* An intriguing, magnetic, genre-rattling book The Times * Marvellous ... a glorious truant from study ... gives a better picture of (Lawrence) than any biography I know. -- James Wood Guardian * The kind of book that gives literary criticism a bad name. Hilarious! -- John Berger * A masterpiece Mail on Sunday * If there was a prize for the year's funniest book then it would win hands down Independent on Sunday * Quite possibly the best living writer in Britain Daily Telegraph * A national treasure -- Zadie Smith * One of my favourite of all contemporary writers. I love his sense of the absurd, his pessimism mixed with robust good cheer, his beautifully crafted sentences, his jokes and his intelligence. -- Alain de Botton * Geoff Dyer is a true original - one of those rare voices in contemporary literature that never ceases to surprise, disturb and delight. Risky, breathtakingly candid, intellectual, cool, outrageous, laconic and sometimes shocking, Geoff Dyer is a must-read for our confused and perplexing times. -- William Boyd * [Out of Sheer Rage] gets the full Canongate Canons treatment from its new Edinburgh publishers this month; happy, happy news if ever there was any, O.O.S.R is vintage Dyer, and well worthy of this upgrade to 'modern classic' status. Dazed and Confused * Reading this book is the very opposite of a waste of time. It is an education and a delight Guardian
