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, Houses aren t refuges from history They are where history ends up br br Bill Bryson and his family live in a Victorian parsonage in a part of England where nothing of any great significance has happened since the Romans decamped Yet one day he began to consider how very little he knew about the ordinary things of life as he found it in that comfortable home To remedy this he formed the idea of journeying about his house from room to room to write a history of the world without leaving home The bathroom provides the occasion for a history of hygiene the bedroom sex death and sleep the kitchen nutrition and the spice trade and so on as Bryson shows how each has figured in the evolution of private life Whatever happens in the world he demonstrates ends up in our house in the paint and the pipes and the pillows and every item of furniture, 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 CLASSIC FROM THE i NEW YORK TIMES i BESTSELLING AUTHOR OF i ONE SUMMER i b br br Every time Bill Bryson walks out the door memorable travel literature threatens to break out His previous excursion along the Appalachian Trail resulted in the sublime national bestseller i A Walk in the Woods i i In A Sunburned Country i is his report on what he found in an entirely different place Australia the country that doubles as a continent and a place with the friendliest inhabitants the hottest driest weather and the most peculiar and lethal wildlife to be found on the planet The result is a deliciously funny fact filled and adventurous performance by a writer who combines humor wonder and unflagging curiousity br br Despite the fact that Australia harbors more things that can kill you in extremely nasty ways than anywhere else including sharks crocodiles snakes even riptides and deserts Bill Bryson adores the place and he takes his readers on a rollicking ride far beyond that beaten tourist path Wherever he goes he finds Australians who are cheerful extroverted and unfailingly obliging and these beaming products of land with clean safe cities cold beer and constant sunshine fill the pages of this wonderful book Australia is an immense and fortunate land and it has found in Bill Bryson its perfect guide
