Janet Samber is one of our Club’s most intrepid travelers. So it’s not surprising when she shared her favorite author, travel writer Pico Iyer. Iyer has brought something new and important to the genre. By acutely observing our emerging global culture, his travelogues moved into social criticism, philosophizing on the effects of travel on the traveler, and the traveler’s effect on the places traveled to.
But he writes so much more, as well.
