Jeff in Venice, Death in Varanasi
Price: £7.99Add to basket
Comprising two novellas, both of which feel rather like fictionalised travelogues. Dyer writes with great skill and humour, and his reworking of Mann's 'Death in Venice' does a neat job of skewering the modern hedonistic tourist. The graphic sex is however perhaps rather overwrought. The Varanasi section is better, but could not be recommended ahead of the many Indian novels of greater scope.
Format: Paperback large format, 296pp
Publication date: Jul 2010
