Product description

Review

"Quite possibly the best living writer in Britain" (Daily Telegraph)

"An intriguing, magnetic, genre-rattling book" (The Times)

"The kind of book that gives literary criticism a bad name. Hilarious!" (John Berger)

"If there was a prize for the year's funniest book then it would win hands down" (Independent on Sunday)

"A masterpiece" (Mail on Sunday)

"Marvellous . . . a glorious truant from study . . . gives a better picture of (Lawrence) than any biography I know." (James Wood Guardian)

"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)
