Geoff Dyer: White Sands

In his latest book White Sands (Canongate) inveterate traveller, novelist and essayist Geoff Dyer investigates, through ten journeys to places as distant from one another as Mexico, Beijing, French Polynesia and LA, the mystery of why we travel. Geoff Dyer's unique blend of humour and intellectual heft was on dazzling display in this evening of conversation with Gareth Evans, curator of film at the Whitechapel Gallery.
