Pico Iyer | The Sun Magazine

Pico Iyer

Pico Iyer describes himself as “a global village on two legs.” It’s a fitting appellation for someone who was born in England to Indian parents, immigrated to California as a boy, was later educated at Eton and Oxford, and now spends much of his time in Japan. A longtime essayist, Iyer is the author of Video Night in Kathmandu, Falling off the Map, and Cuba and the Night.
