Zona: A Book About a Film About a Journey to a Room

Why are we talking about it?
While gaining traction as a cult read, this book still deserves more attention than it's getting. "Zona" is an unpretentious yet deeply involving discussion of why art can move us, and an examination of how our relationship to art changes throughout our lives. It's also funny, moving and unlike any other piece of writing about a movie.

Geoff Dyer’s Zona is sort of about Tarkovsky’s Stalker, but mostly it’s about getting lost in a film.
