Summary

From one of our most beloved, original authors, a classic book never before published in the U.S.-a personal meditation on war and remembrance. Geoff Dyer has won fans writing about everything from jazz to D.H. Lawrence, from photography to neurotic enlightenment, from Cambodia to Rome.The Missing of the Somme, his remarkable book on the signifi cance of the First World War, is a gem for Dyer fans and history buffs alike. With his characteristic wit and insight, here Dyer weaves a network of myth and memory, photos and film, poetry and sculptures, graveyards, and ceremonies that illuminate our understanding of, and relationship to, the Great War.
