This copy of "Falling Off the Map" has been SIGNED by Pico Iyer on the title page! Pico Iyer is a traveler, and he particularly likes places that the rest of us would make a point of avoiding. This is a book about such places - "lonely places," Iyer calls them, "the places that don't fit in," places that in their psychic or geographical or political isolation become even stranger and more remote as time goes on, more possessed by claustrophobia and loony comedy.

This copy of "Abandon" has been SIGNED by Pico Iyer on the title page! "Abandon" is a mystical romance in the classic Persian tradition brought into the bleached sunlight of Southern California today. But it is also an unexpected and distinctive look at the clash between Islam and the West, at a time when Los Angeles is partly run by Iranian exiles and the long-closed cities of Iran are slowly opening up to Westerners.

This copy of "Cuba and the Night" has been SIGNED by Pico Iyer on the title page! This is Pico Iyer's first novel. Viewed purely as a rich, pungent, and unusually intimate description of the daily life and death of Havana, with its frequent electrical blackouts and ubiquitous secret police. Pico Iyer here also shows himself capable of telling a wonderful story- romantic yet witty, deeply affecting yet delicately ironic, and completely convincing. "Cuba and the Night" is a delight.

This copy of "Autumn Light" has been SIGNED by Pico Iyer on the title page! He has also crossed-out his printed name and wrote: "With every best wish" and dated it "Princeton 4/19." After his first year in Japan, almost thirty years ago, Iyer gave us a springtime romance for the ages, "The Lady and the Monk;" now, half a lifetime later, he shows us a more seasoned place---and observer---looking for what lasts in a life that feels ever more fragile.
