Pico Iyer is one of the world’s most beloved essayists and travel writers. In his latest two books, Autumn Light and A Beginner’s Guide to Japan, he offers distinct and touchingly intimate portraits of the country where he has lived for the last three decades: Japan. Joining us for the first time, Iyer will discuss these exquisitely crafted new books and the colourful people and places that inspired them. Whether he’s guiding us through a bustling izakaya, the picturesque backstreets of Kyoto or the neon glare of Tokyo, this master storyteller is guaranteed to pique the interest and curiosity of those who don’t know Japan, and to remind those who do of why the island nation remains so enthralling and unique.
