Five years ago, I ended a love affair with a nasty itch. The itch, it turned out, when I went to the doctor complaining that entire armies of creepy-crawlies were apparently trying to burrow through my skin (which now resembled a bloody battlefield) was scabies.

No, I had been living like a nun. But I had just been on holiday in Goa.

Alvarez's desire to escape lit crit and go "beyond all this fiddle" bears fruit in this journalistic trawl that ranges from rock climbing to the infantilisation of Las Vegas. He still writes brilliantly about literature – an essay on Saint Exupéry includes a brisk exploration of the relationship between art and aviation, while a critique of Thom Gunn explores his late fulfilment as a poet when Aids struck San Francisco – but one of the most perceptive pieces here is an account of the author's experience of a Grateful Dead gig, even though Alvarez admits, "I had never been to a rock and roll concert." Maybe he should give the Arctic Monkeys a whirl.
