An occasional series in which writers speak for themselves.
Pico Iyer has long been known as a premier chronicler of foreign lands. His 15 books include Video Night in Kathmandu, Falling Off the Map, and Cuba and the Night, to name just a few. Recently, he set his sights on the Land of the Rising Sun in A Beginner's Guide to Japan: Observations and Provocations, which “will delight Japanophiles and armchair travelers alike,” according to Shelf Awareness.
