Thanks Merton
I too like Pico Iyer's writing. I have read most of his travel books and am looking forward to reading this book in particular.

My book list keeps piling up! Loved the segment quoted at this link. And, I, too, love Pico Iyer's unique perspectives and writing. So fitting for writing about Leonard.

Received this fine little booklet today and you are quite right Lizzytish: it really fits Leonards way of thinking about life, love, death, etc.
Love it.
here is your love for all this
