No hotel is as inseparably linked to its city than Raffles Hotel, writes Pico Iyer, arguably the world¡¯s greatest travel writer alive. Drawing upon numerous stays in Raffles over 35 years and the fast-ascending city all around it, Iyer¡ªa lifelong global soul¡ªreflects on the ¡°Grand Old Lady¡¯s¡± literary legacy and its mark on writers everywhere. In the process, he finds new ways of considering not just yesterday, but tomorrow. How have Singapore and its white-stucco monument evolved to meet the needs of a shifting world? In this compact volume, Iyer pulls back the curtains on a personal, thoughtful and surprising look at places we too often take for granted.
