Jeff in Venice, Death in Vaanasi by Geoff Dyer
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Ah Venice! The canals, palazzos, gondoliers, vaporetti... the bellinis. Jeff Atman, hack writer, is in town for the Biennale. Ostensibly to fulfil a freelance commission; actually to attend as many parties and soak up as much free booze as logistically possible. Then he meets Laura. Suddenly, amid the compulsive socialising and irony-clad banter, there is the possibility of something more.

And then there is Varanasi. A freelance writer arrives to do a travel piece. Just a short visit: time to take in the impossible traffic, the dubious waters of the Ganges, the ordure-streaked ghats and multifarious gods; and to encounter destiny.

A tale of two very different cities that appear surprisingly similar. Two separate stories that may, in fact, be one. Ingenious and vastly entertaining, Jeff in Venice, Death in Varanasi is a novel about love, death-and the various processes of transformation.
