Pico Iyer – The Half Known Life: In Search of Paradise

by Jeremy Bassetti
Pico Iyer Interview The Half Known Life

Pico Iyer joins me on the podcast again. And this time we’re discussing his new book The Half Known Life: In Search of Paradise. 

As the subtitle reveals, The Half Known Life is a book about the idea of paradise. But it is also a book about living in the real world and embracing the unknown, topics that Pico and I chat about in today’s podcast.

We also talk briefly about Reading, Writing, Buddhism, Peter Matthiessen, Cal Flyn, and more.
