Sun After Dark: Flights into the Foreign
When Pico Iyer finds himself, one sleepless midsummer night, rattling through the suburbs of La Paz in a taxi, his mind is flooded with memories of past encounters and journeys. As the ethereal night air stills and he stares into the half-light of the coming dawn, he comes to an intriguing realisation -- that he is travelling in search of something that he hopes he will never find.
Sun After Dark is a captivating reinvention of the travel memoir. In a series of exotic explorations describing journeys that have affected him, from LA to Haiti and Yemen to Ethiopia, Iyer practices meditation with Leonard Cohen and discusses geopolitics with the Dalai Lama, travels to Easter Island and through the imaginative terrains of W. G. Sebald and Kazuo Ishiguro. In his inimitable and graceful style, Iyer is both a physical and psychological guide through the challenges presented to us by our ever-changing world.
