Parallel Stories turns its gaze both inward and outward as the ever-engaging author and Santa Barbara favorite Pico Iyer shares his new book, the fruit of 31 years of reflection on his adopted home near Kyoto. In Autumn Light, Iyer describes a single season in his suburban neighborhood in Japan as the leaves turn, the skies grow ever more brilliant, and he watches elders die, grandchildren arrive, and all the universal questions of love and loss play out in a world of ancestor worship and moon-viewing.
