Summary
Pico Iyer is a traveler, and he particularly likes places that the rest of us would make a point of avoiding. This book is about such places - "lonely places" Iyer calls them, "the places that don't fit in", places that in their psychic or geographical or political isolation become even stranger and more remote as time goes on, more posessed by claustrophobia and looney comedy
