Details

In this spellbinding book, the man described by the Daily Telegraph as 'possibly the best living writer in Britain' takes on his biggest challenge yet: unlocking the film that has obsessed him all his adult life. Like the film Stalker itself, it confronts the most mysterious and enduring questions of life and how to live.

'We all know what it is like to feel indebted to, and inadequate before, a towering work, but few people have ever described that feeling with the ingenuity or the candour of Dyer... The book is not only readable, it is hard to put down.' Giles Harvery, New York Review of Books.

'[Dyer] shows how writing about a film can deliver a sense of adventure. His book offers the satisfaction of a mediation that inhales a much larger world.' Nick James, Sight & Sound
