SHORTLISTED FOR STANFORD DOLMAN TRAVEL BOOK OF THE YEAR
From a trip to The Lightning Field in New Mexico, to chasing Gauguin’s ghost in French Polynesia, White Sands is a creative exploration of why we travel.
Episodic, wide-ranging and funny, Geoff Dyer blends travel writing, essay, criticism and fiction with a smart and cantankerous wit that is unmatched. From one of the most original writers in Britain, this is a book for armchair travellers and procrastinating philosophers everywhere.
Surpassingly eloquent . . . there’s no other writer quite like Dyer
