Anglo-English Attitudes PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Anglo-English Attitudes free pdf Geoff Dyer's books have been widely praised for their originality, variety and range - qualities displayed even more boldly in his journalism. Avoiding any specialism, writing on whatever interested him at a given time, he has achieved enviable freedom as an essayist, journalist and critic. ANGLO-ENGLISH ATTITUDES brings together his best freelance work of the last fifteen years. There are sustained meditations on photographers (from canonical figures like Cartier-Bresson and Robert Capa to the barely known master William Gedney), on painters (Bonnard, Gauguin), musicians (Coltrane, Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan) and close critical engagements with writers (Camus, Graham Greene, Cormac McCarthy, Michael Ondaatje and Martin Amis). Also here are idiosyncratic reflections on boxing, on collecting, on Airfix models and Action Man, and often hilarious accounts of his 'misadventures': flying in a Mig-29 in Moscow, on the razz with Def Leppard in Seoul, on safari in Africa, and in trouble learning to freefall parachute. And much, much more...
