June's Read of the Month
The Last Days of Roger Federer By Geoff DyerAn extended meditation on late style and last works blending criticism, memoir, and humorous banter of the most serious kind into something entirely new. Ranging from Burning Man and the Doors to the nineteenth-century Alps and back, The Last Days of Roger Federer is a book about how to go on living with art and beauty—and on the entrancing effect and sudden illumination that an Art Pepper solo or Annie Dillard reflection can engender in even the most jaded and ironic sensibilities.
