Peter Hessler and Pico Iyer

New Yorker journalist Peter Hessler’s The Buried: An Archeology of the Egyptian Revolution is an intimate excavation of life in one of the world's oldest civilizations at a time of convulsive change. “He is a deeply humane teller of true tales, a keen observer, a graceful stylist,” wrote The Atlantic. Pico Iyer’s new book, Autumn Light, is a meditation on impermanence, mortality, and grief that draws on his more than 30 years of living in Japan. “He is a writer like no other, sui generis,” wrote Jan Morris. “His particular gifts of thoughtfulness, perception and descriptive power, allied by now with profound experience, reach new levels of grace.”
