Geoff Dyer, 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. Magnificently unpredictable and hilarious (and, surely, one of the most unusual books ever written about cinema), Zona takes the reader on an enthralling, thought-provoking journey. The ostensible subject of Zona is the film Stalker, by the great Russian director Andrei Tarkovsky. As Dyer immerses us in the movie, it becomes apparent that Stalker is only the point of departure for a wonderfully digressive exploration of cinema, of how we understand our obsessions and of how we try to realise - no, discover - our deepest wishes.

A Fascinating Insight

This book is about the author, Geoff Dyer, and his obsession with a film called Stalker. In this film, the stalker leads two men on a perilous journey to find a room that grants a person's deepest desires. This film stuck in Dyer's mind to the point where he became obsessed with it, and this book, "Zona", is his attempt to understand his obsession and to understand the themes of the film. It is a completely unique book that is surprisingly easy to read. Dyer tries to understand why the film has become so important to his life by picking is apart scene by scene. It is fascinating to see a writer go so deep into their own mind.
