Geoff Dyer in conversation with Fernando Gómez

The Last Days of Roger Federer

Cartagena 2024, 

What happens when great artists and athletes get to the end of their careers? In The Last Days of Roger Federer, in his characteristic style, Geoff Dyer portrays figures as different as Bob Dylan, Friedrich Nietzsche and Boris Becker, offering a lucid reflection on success and decadence. Through anecdotes and history, the author shows us the last days of these geniuses, demonstrating that it is possible to find meaning in the finite, and to continue to reinvent ourselves long after youth has ended. In conversation with the journalist Fernando Gómez.
