For years, Pico Iyer has split his time between California and Japan, where he and his Japanese wife, Hiroko, have a small home. But when his father-in-law dies suddenly, calling him back to Japan earlier than expected, Iyer begins to grapple with the question we all have to live with: how to hold on to the things we love, even though we know that we and they are dying.

A far-reaching exploration of Japanese history and culture and a moving meditation on impermanence, mortality, and grief.

Hardcover, 256 pages.
