Alive with insight, delight and Dyer’s characteristic irreverence, this effervescent book offers a guide through the maze of modern culture. Across ten years worth of essays, Working the Room spans the photography of Martin Parr to the paintings of Turner, the writing of Scott-Fitzgerald to the criticism of Susan Sontag, and includes extensive personal pieces – ‘On Being an Only Child’, ‘Sacked’ and ‘Reader’s Block’ among many others. Dyer’s breadth of vision and generosity of spirit combine to form a manual for ways of seeing – and being – in the world today.
