Pico Iyer was born in Oxford, England, to parents from India, and educated at Eton, Oxford and Harvard, while officially growing up in Southern California. He is the author of eight works of non-fiction, including Video Night in Kathmandu (cited on many lists of the best travel books ever), The Lady and the Monk (finalist for the Los Angeles Times Book Award in the category of Current Interest) and The Global Soul (subject of websites and theatrical productions around the world). He has also written the novels Cuba and the Night and Abandon.
For a quarter of a century, he has been an essayist for Time magazine, while also writing constantly on literature for The New York Review of Books, on globalism for Harper's, and on many other topics for venues from The New York Times to National Geographic. His 2oo8 book, The Open Road, describing more than 30 years of talking and traveling with the Fourteenth Dalai Lama, came out in a dozen countries. His most recent book, on Graham Greene, hauntedness and fathers--The Man Within My Head--came out earlier this year.
