In Bryson s biggest book he confronts his greatest challenge to understand and if possible answer the oldest biggest questions we have posed about the universe and ourselves Taking as territory everything from the Big Bang to the rise of civilization Bryson seeks to understand how we got from there being nothing at all to there being us To that end he has attached himself to a host of the world s most advanced and often obsessed archaeologists anthropologists and mathematicians travelling to their offices laboratories and field camps He has read or tried to read their books pestered them with questions apprenticed himself to their powerful minds b A Short History of Nearly Everything b i i is the record of this quest and it is a sometimes profound sometimes funny and always supremely clear and entertaining adventure in the realms of human knowledge as only Bill Bryson can render it Science has never been more involving or entertaining, b From one of the most beloved and bestselling authors in the English language a vivid nostalgic and utterly hilarious memoir of growing up in the s br b br Bill Bryson was born in the middle of the American century in the middle of the United States Des Moines Iowa in the middle of the largest generation in American history the baby boomers As one of the best and funniest writers alive he is perfectly positioned to mine his memories of a totally all American childhood for carat memoir gold Like millions of his generational peers Bill Bryson grew up with a rich fantasy life as a superhero In his case he ran around his house and neighborhood with an old football jersey with a thunderbolt on it and a towel about his neck that served as his cape leaping tall buildings in a single bound and vanquishing awful evildoers and morons in his head as The Thunderbolt Kid br br Using this persona as a springboard Bill Bryson re creates the life of his family and his native city in the s in all its transcendent normality a life at once completely familiar to us all and as far away and unreachable as another galaxy It was he reminds us a happy time when automobiles and televisions and appliances not to mention nuclear weapons grew larger and more numerous with each passing year and DDT cigarettes and the fallout from atmospheric testing were considered harmless or even good for you He brings us into the life of his loving but eccentric family including affectionate portraits of his father a gifted sportswriter for the local paper and dedicated practitioner of isometric exercises and OF his mother whose job as the home furnishing editor for the same paper left her little time for practicing the domestic arts at home The many readers of Bill Bryson s earlier classic i A Walk in the Woods i will greet the reappearance in these pages of the immortal Stephen Katz seen hijacking literally boxcar loads of beer He is joined in the Bryson gallery of immortal characters by the demonically clever Willoughby brothers who apply their scientific skills and can do attitude to gleefully destructive ends br br Warm and laugh out loud funny and full of his inimitable pitch perfect observations i The Life and Times of the Thunderbolt Kid i is as wondrous a book as Bill Bryson has ever written It will enchant anyone who has ever been young, Bill Bryson s first travel book i The Lost Continent i was unanimously acclaimed as one of the funniest books in years In i Neither Here nor There i he brings his unique brand of humour to bear on Europe as he shoulders his backpack keeps a tight hold on his wallet and journeys from Hammerfest the northernmost town on the continent to Istanbul on the cusp of Asia Fluent in oh at least one language he retraces his travels as a student twenty years before br br Whether braving the homicidal motorist of Paris being robbed by gypsies in Florence attempting not to order tripe and eyeballs in a German restaurant window shopping in the sex shops of the Reeperbahn or disputing his hotel bill in Copenhagen Bryson takes in the sights dissects the culture and illuminates each place and person with his hilariously caustic observations He even goes to Liechtenstein, b A i Chicago Tribune i Noteworthy Book br A GoodReads Reader s Choice br br In i One Summer i Bill Bryson one of our greatest and most beloved nonfiction writers transports readers on a journey back to one amazing season in American life b br br The summer of began with one of the signature events of the twentieth century on May Charles Lindbergh became the first man to cross the Atlantic by plane nonstop and when he landed in Le Bourget airfield near Paris he ignited an explosion of worldwide rapture and instantly became the most famous person on the planet Meanwhile the titanically talented Babe Ruth was beginning his assault on the home run record which would culminate on September with his sixtieth blast one of the most resonant and durable records in sports history In between those dates a Queens housewife named Ruth Snyder and her corset salesman lover garroted her husband leading to a murder trial that became a huge tabloid sensation Alvin Shipwreck Kelly sat atop a flagpole in Newark New Jersey for twelve days a new record The American South was clobbered by unprecedented rain and by flooding of the Mississippi basin a great human disaster the relief efforts for which were guided by the uncannily able and insufferably pompous Herbert Hoover Calvin Coolidge interrupted an already leisurely presidency for an even more relaxing three month vacation in the Black Hills of South Dakota The gangster Al Capone tightened his grip on the illegal booze business through a gaudy and murderous reign of terror and municipal corruption The first true talking picture Al Jolson s i The Jazz Singer i was filmed and forever changed the motion picture industry The four most powerful central bankers on earth met in secret session on a Long Island estate and made a fateful decision that virtually guaranteed a future crash and depression br All this and much much more transpired in that epochal summer of and Bill Bryson captures its outsized personalities exciting events and occasional just plain weirdness with his trademark vividness eye for telling detail and delicious humor In that year America stepped out onto the world stage as the main event and i One Summer i transforms it all into narrative nonfiction of the highest order
