Another Great Day At Sea by Geoff Dyer

Reviewed by

Despite their disparate subject matter, the central concerns of Geoff Dyer’s books remain the same. Whether he is writing about photography, D.H. Lawrence, taking you scene-by-scene through Andrei Tarkovsky’s Stalker, or, as in Another Great Day At Sea, spending two weeks aboard a US aircraft carrier, his abiding concerns – the self, the nature of writing, why one would go to the trouble of writing a book in the first place – inevitably rise to the fore. While you are guaranteed to learn a good deal about the subject along the way, it is these reflections that are the greatest pleasures of his books; that, and the fact he is one of the funniest writers working today.
