A New York Times Notable Book A Best Book of the Year: The Economist, The New Yorker, San Francisco Chronicle,, and Time In Venice, at the Biennale, a jaded, bellini-swigging journalist named Jeff Atman meets a beautiful woman and they embark on a passionate affair. In Varanasi, an unnamed journalist (who may or may not be Jeff) joins thousands of pilgrims on the banks of the holy Ganges. He intends to stay for a few days but ends up remaining for months. Their journey-as only the irrepressibly entertaining Geoff Dyer could conjure-makes for an uproarious, fiendishly inventive novel of Italy and India, longing and lust, and the prospect of neurotic enlightenment. From the Trade Paperback edition.
