This Could Be Home: Raffles Hotel and the City of Tomorrow

Author: Pico Iyer Narrator: Pico Iyer Audiobook and E-book

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—a lifelong global soul—reflects 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.
