Forster Award a National Book Critics Circle Award for Criticism and a WindhamCampbell Prize for nonfiction Dyer is a regular contributor to many publications in the UK and the US. He lives in California.Broadsword Calling Danny Boy is a hilariously funny freewheeling rulebreaking wholly original scenebyscene sprint through the crazy action from Where Eagles Dare. I defy anyone not to laugh at Dyers description of Clint Eastwoods talent for squinting or when facetoface with armed Nazis not just swinging but squinting in German.Blissfully funnyA Telegraph Evening Standard and Daily Mail Book of the YearFrom the acclaimed writer and critic Geoff Dyer an extremely funny scenebyscene analysis of Where Eagles Dare published as the film reaches its 50th anniversaryA thrilling Alpine adventure starring a magnificent blearyeyed Richard Burton and a coolly anachronistic Clint Eastwood Where Eagles Dare is the apex of 1960s war movies by turns enjoyable and preposterous. Broadsword Calling Danny Boy is Geoff Dyers tribute to the film he has loved since childhood: an analysis taking us from its snowy Teutonic opening credits to its vertigoinducing climax. For those who have not even seen Where Eagles Dare this book is a comic tourdeforce of criticism. But for the films legions of fans whose hearts will always belong to Ron Goodwins theme tune it will be the fulfilment of a dream.Geoff Dyers funniest book yet. Who else would work in Martha Gellhorn on the first page of a book on the film Where Eagles Dare?
