Pico Iyer

Wednesday, May 22, 2019, 2:30 AM


For years, Pico Iyer has split his time between California and Nara, Japan, where he and his Japanese wife, Hiroko, have a small home. But when his father-in-law dies suddenly, calling him back to Japan earlier than expected, Iyer begins to grapple with the question we all have to live with: how to hold on to the things we love, even though we know that we and they are dying. In a country whose calendar is marked with occasions honoring the dead, this question is more urgent than anywhere else. Iyer’s Autumn Light (Knopf) is a far-reaching exploration of Japanese history and culture, and a moving meditation on impermanence, mortality, and grief.
