Description

Alive with insight, wit and Dyer’s characteristic irreverence, this book offers a guide around the cultural maze, mapping a route through the worlds of literature, art, photography and music. Besides exploring what it is that makes great art great, Working the Room ventures into more personal territory with extensive autobiographical pieces – ‘On Being an Only Child’, ‘Sacked’ and ‘Reader’s Block’, among others gems. Dyer’s breadth of vision and generosity of spirit combine to form a manual for ways of being in – and seeing – the world today.

“One of my favourite of all contemporary writers” – Alain de Botton

“The whole thing is bliss. I urge it on you.” – Sam Leith, Spectator 

“Shrewd, funny, original” – Andrew Motion, Guardian 

“One of the cleverest and funniest British writers currently drawing breath… A supremely good collection.” – Dazed and Confused
