Geoff Dyer (Jeff in Venice, Death in Varanasi, Paris Trance and many wonderful other books) is renowned for his discursive approach to an almost impossibly wide range of subjects. In his latest, Zona: A Book about a Film about a Journey to a Room, he explores the mysteries of a film that has haunted him ever since he saw it thirty years ago: Andrei Tarkovsky’s Stalker, which is widely regarded as one of the greatest cinematic works of all time. (“Every single frame,” declared Cate Blanchett, “is burned into my retina.”) In this very special event, Geoff Dyer talks about the many literary and other byways he is compelled to wander down. And other things. Who knows what he will say?
