Pico Iyer Interview

June 1st, 2008 by Lewis Frumkes

 

the-open-roadProbably one of the most eloquent men I know, Pico writes with style to spare. His prose is not only invariably interesting and elegant, but languorous as well which happens to be his favorite word. On visiting North Korea once Pico found it curious that North Korea one of the least travelled places on earth by tourists was building the tallest hotel in the world. Whether it is Pico writing travel books like Cuba By Night or his most recent thoughts about the Dalai Lama,  you will find yourself unable to put his work down.
