Zona : a book about a film about a journey to a room

Magnificently unpredictable and hilarious, Zona takes the reader on an enthralling, thought-provoking journey. The subject of Zona is the film Stalker, by the great director Andrei Tarkovsky. Dyer uses Stalker as the point of departure for a wonderfully digressive exploration of cinema, our obsessions and how we realise our deepest wishes.

  • "An analysis of the film "Stalker" describes the author's thirty-year fascination with the film and evaluates how it reflects both European cinema and the deepest desires of the human psyche."@en
  • "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."
