What Pico Iyer says

I first read ‘The Quiet American’ maybe thirty years ago, and ever since then, I have turned to it, my uncertain Bible, a gospel for those who can’t be sure of a thing, every few months. Like any friend, it changes as I change, growing as I slowly come to know myself and the world a little better; and like any friend, it’s always the same, really.
