Geoff Dyer

Geoff Dyer has written many books on many topics including jazz, yoga and writing. Now he focuses on life at sea - but not on just any ol' boat. His latest book, Another Great Day at Sea focuses on his time spent aboard the USS George H.W. Bush. Fans of Dyer's writing will expect an unconventional, humorous approach and they will be right.

He spent two weeks aboard the aircraft carrier as "writer-in-residence" and from that he crafted a report of shipboard life that National Public Radio described as "entertainingly cranky." The book is a look at challenges aboard a ship that has a naval and air crew combined of 5,000 and is the last-built of the Nimitz Class nuclear aircraft carriers. Dyer's two weeks came while the carrier was in the Persian Gulf.

Dyer, an Oxford-educated writer of novels and non-fiction, has won many literary prizes and his work has been translated into 24 languages.
