A book about a film about a journey to a Room

I’m a big fan of British novelist/essayist/travel writer/critic Geoff Dyer (although some of his recent New York Times Book Review columns have baffled me). So, I was intrigued by the news that Dyer has written a book which explores the enigmatic 1979 film Stalker by the Russian director Andrei Tarkovsky. The book, titled Zona: A book About a Film About a Journey to a Room, will be released next month in the UK by Canongate. Maybe someone will send me a copy? Hopefully, Dyer’s book will renew interest in Tarkovsky’s films, including the sci-fi classic Solaris.
