The Global Soul: Jet Lag, Shopping Malls, and the Search for Home by Pico Iyer

From the acclaimed author ofVideo Nights in Kathmanducomes this intriguing new book that deciphers the cultural ramifications of globalization and the rising tide of worldwide displacement. Beginning in Los Angeles International Airport, where town life?shops, services, sociability?is available without a town, Pico Iyer takes us on a tour of the transnational village our world has become. From Hong Kong, where people actually live in self-contained hotels, to Atlantas Olympic Village, which seems to inadvertently commemorate a sort of corporate universalism, to Japan, where in the midst of alien surfaces his apartment building is called The Memphis, Iyer ponders what the word home can possibly mean in a world whose face is blurred by its cultural fusion and its alarmingly rapid rate of change.
