YOGA FOR PEOPLE WHO CAN'T BE BOTHERED TO DO IT (2003)

Details Release Date: Jan 14, 2003; Writer: Geoff Dyer; Genre: Nonfiction

If you find the title hard to fathom, try summarizing the contents. Dyer begins by explaining that all the events in his genre-defying rumination on travel and experience actually happened -- in his head, at least. And anything is possible in the mind of a middle-aged British stoner-intellectual who relates tales from the Burning Man festival in the same reverent tone in which he quotes Auden. From Cambodian jungles to Roman ruins in Libya to his own living-room sofa, Dyer's journeys of self-discovery and self-destruction will make you laugh out loud -- and run through the streets in search of adventure.
