Geoff Dyer and Chris Mitchell: Another Great Day at Sea

Geoff Dyer’s latest book Another Great Day at Sea, illustrated with the photographs of Chris Steele-Perkins, recounts daily life aboard an American aircraft carrier the USS George H. W. Bush, on which Dyer spent time as a kind of writer in residence. Philip Hoare wrote of it in the Guardian: ‘This is beautiful writing. It is urgent, funny, utterly in-the-moment and achingly honest. … Like the captain, like the crew, like the ship, Dyer's superb book constantly reiterates its excellence. It virtually stands to attention on its own.’

Geoff Dyer came to the Bookshop to speak about the project with Chris Mitchell.
