Geoff Dyer: Otherwise Known as the Human Condition - Bookworm on KCRW

Bookworm is one of the smartest programs on the radio and host Michael Silverblatt is one of the smartest people and most insightful readers you can find anywhere. I still haven't gotten around to reading Dyer's recent novel "Jeff in Venice, Death in Varanasi" or his new essay collection "Other wise Known as the Human Condition" but I'm a great admirer of Dyer's earlier books including "But Beautiful," which is about jazz, and "The Ongoing Moment," which is one of my favorite books of art criticism and a great book about photography. It's a thrill to hear that Dyer is just as colorful, thoughtful and playful in person as he is on the page.
