Contest - Win Geoff Dyer's Book Zona, Sergei Tarkovsky's Stalker DVD, and a $100 Threadless Gift Certificate
Geoff Dyer's new book Zona: A Book About a Film About a Journey to a Room, a fantastic and unique critical appreciation of Andrei Tarkovsky's 1979 film Stalker, was published this week.
To enter this week's contest, name the movie you would most like to write a book about. My choice: Battleship Potemkin, by Sergei Eisenstein.
One winner, chosen randomly from the commenters, will receive the following prizes:
A $100 Threadless gift certificate to buy book-related t-shirts like A Voyage of Discovery, A Book Lover, November Was a Good Month, Brainy Rainbow, or Word!, music-related t-shirts like The Official Guide to Music, Boom Box, Sound of the Dark, or anything else that catches your fancy.
