Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Iyer's travelogue about visiting Japan and living in a monastery is subverted by his encounter with a vivacious woman.
Copyright 1992 Reed Business Information, Inc.

Review

"[Iyer] is a sharp-eyed and thoughtful observer, and he is successful in evoking the life of Kyoto's malls, temples, and back streets, moonlit nights on the water, and the vulgarity of the Westernized nightclub and amusement quarter." -- New Yorker

"Pico Iyers remarkable talent is enough justification for going anywhere in the world he fancies." -- Washington Post Book World
