Otherwise Known as the Human Condition: Selected Essays and Reviews, 1989-2010 - Geoff Dyer

Geoff Dyer’s writing can be acerbic, intellectual, critical, irreverent, hilarious, or any combination of these. All his essays, though, display his keen intelligence and insatiable curiosity.  In the introduction to OTHERWISE KNOWN AS THE HUMAN CONDITION (Graywolf, $18), Dyer describes why he chose his particular literary path.  “What,” he asks, “could be nicer than one day to be writing a review of a novel or exhibition and the next to be going off to Moscow to write about flying a MiG-29?”  He divides the book into sections he calls Visuals, Verbals, Musicals, Variables, and Personals, an arrangement that showcases the versatility of his critical eye.
