2022: The Last Days of Roger Federer — and Other Endings

When artists and athletes age, what happens to their work? Does it ripen or rot? As our bodies decay, how—and why—do we keep going? GEOFF DYER has long been regarded in the literary world as one of the most original, beguiling, and wittily ironic writers alive. He will discuss his encounter with late middle age against the backdrop of the last days and last works of writers, painters, footballers, musicians, and tennis stars who have mattered to him throughout his life. If you have never encountered Dyer or his work, do not miss his unique blend of playful, humorous charm and penetrating intelligence.
