“Ping-pong is a life style, a training in attention, a diversion, a mad passion and a way of not taking anything important too seriously and taking some tiny things much too seriously.” – Pico Iyer
“Ideally, the last picture in this book would show me pumping my fist in brutish victory.” – Geoff Dyer
For several years, Alec Soth has combined his passion for both table tennis and photography by collecting vernacular ping-pong photographs. With this publication, Soth asked Geoff Dyer and Pico Iyer, writers and fellow table tennis enthusiasts, to respond to these pictures by engaging in a kind of literary ping-pong match.
