Ad description

In this age of constant movement and connectedness, when so many of us are all over the place, perhaps staying in one place – and locating everything we need for peace and happiness there – is a more exciting prospect, and a greater necessity than ever before. Through his extensive interviews with creative geniuses of our day, as well as historical records and his own life experience, acclaimed author Pico Iyer paints a picture of why so many have found such richness in stillness and what – from Marcel Proust to Blaise Pascal to Phillipe Starck – they’ve gained there. Why would a man who seems able to go everywhere and do anything—the international heart-throb and Rock ‘n’ Roll Hall of Famer Leonard Cohen—choose to spend years sitting still and going nowhere? What can Nowhere offer that no Anywhere can match? And why might a lifelong traveler like Iyer, who has journeyed from Easter Island to Ethiopia, Cuba to Kathmandu, think that sitting in a room might be the ultimate adventure?
