Pico Iyer reads an excerpt from The Global Soul.


Pico Iyer in conversation with Larry Habegger.


Pico Iyer is the author of many books including Sun After Dark, The Global Soul, Tropical Classical, Falling Off the Map, The Lady and the Monk, Video Night in Kathmandu, and the novels Abandon and Cuba and the Night. He considers himself “a global village on two legs” and he views the world from the perspective of a global citizen. His work has appeared in publications such as TIME, Harper’s, Condé Nast Traveler, New York Review of Books, and others. The Utne Reader has lauded him as “elevating travel reportage to new heights” and the Los Angeles Times has called him travel writing’s “rightful heir to Jan Morris and Paul Theroux.”

Travelers’ Tales Executive Editor Larry Habegger caught up with him recently from his home in Santa Barbara, California.
