"A short, brilliant novel, "The Search" offers more in 150 pages than most books twice that length." "The Guardian"
Walker meets Rachel at a glamorous party by the bay. When she turns up at his apartment two days later, there is a hint of erotic promise in the air. But it isn't Walker she wants at least not yet. Her husband, Malory, has gone missing, and she wants Walker to find him.
So begins Walker's quest, as well as this beautiful novel that takes our hard-boiled knight across the vast landscape of an imaginary middle America that begins subtly to morph into something stranger. Walker's search intensifies, and soon it seems that somebody else is searching for him. In "The Search," his second novel, Geoff Dyer concocts a sophisticated and enthralling narrative puzzle."
