“No hotel is as inseparably linked to its city than Raffles Hotel”, writes Pico Iyer, arguably the world’s greatest travel writer alive. In This Could Be Home: Raffles Hotel And The City Of Tomorrow, Iyer pulls back the curtains to have a personal, thoughtful and surprising look at places we too often take for granted.
Drawing upon numerous stays in Raffles Hotel 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?
