GEOFF DYER returns to Spoonbill & Sugartown's flagship Bedford Avenue shop to present his new book Broadsworth Calling Danny Boy: Watching Where Eagles Dare (Pantheon, 2019, $22). He will also discuss another of his recent books, The Street Photography of Gary Winogrand (U. Texas Press, 2017). From Publishers Weekly: “Moving scene-by-scene through the 1969 epic Where Eagles Dare, starring Clint Eastwood and Richard Burton as commandos who infiltrate a German-held Alpine castle, Dyer lovingly and obsessively dissects a film that’s held a special place in his imagination ever since his first boyhood viewing, so that he calls this study ‘a chapter from an autobiography.’ He shows off an exquisite eye for visual detail … He also exhibits an impressive breadth of reference, name-checking Doctor Who’s TARDIS and quoting Rilke within two short pages.”
Tuesday April 4, 2019. Spoonbill & Sugartown: 218 Bedford Avenue, Brooklyn, NY. Info: 718-387-7322.
