Geoff Dyer reads The Last Days of Roger Federer: And Other Endings

Sat   Apr   01   2023 - 2:00 PM East Tennessee Historical Society

A beguiling meditation on when artists and athletes age, what happens to their work? Does it ripen or rot? Achieve a new serenity or succumb to an escalating torment? As our bodies decay, how do we keep on? A reading and discussion of the creative process. As Geoff describes the book himself, “it’s  hardly about tennis at all, though there are sections on the last works of Pharoah Sanders, Albert Ayler, Beethoven, and others.”
