Pico Iyer was born in England to Indian parents, grew up in California, attended Eton and Oxford and now lives in suburban Japan and California. Literary Quarterly had this to say about Pico Iyer and his writing:
"Pico Iyer is the poet laureate of wanderlust. His perennial subject is the strange confluences and poignant idiosyncrasies born of our world's dissolving borders, and he explores it with a rich mixture of astonishing erudition and wide-eyed wonder."
Pico Iyer is the author of several books about cultures converging, including Video Night in Kathmandu, The Lady and the Monk, The Global Soul, and, most recently, Abandon. His articles appear often in such magazines as Harper's, Time, and the New York Review of Books.
