Noch nicht erschienen
BeschreibungThe first of two Bill Bryson titles that have reverted to Transworld following the Doubleday publication of his latest title, "A Walk In The Woods. Made In America" takes a look at American culture and history. "A tremendously sassy work, full of zip, pizzazz and all those other great American qualities" Will Self, "Independent On Sunday".
PortraitBill Bryson is much loved for his bestselling travel books, from The Lost Continent to Down Under, but Notes from a Small Island has earned a particularly special place in the nation's heart (a national poll for World Book Day in 2003 voted it the book that best represents Britain). His acclaimed A Short History of Nearly Everything won the Aventis Prize for Science Books and the Descartes Science Communication Prize. He has now returned to live in the UK with his wife and family. www.billbryson.co.uk
Pressestimmen"A tremendously sassy work, full of zip, pizzazz and all those other great American qualities" -- Will Self Independent on Sunday "Immensely entertaining... a sharp eye for odd facts and amusing anecdotes" -- Michael Sheldon Daily Telegraph "The book is a triumph. Bryson carries it off by his joie de vivre, his unadorned prose and the sheer width of his snooping beneath the skin of the American dream" Literary Review "Funny, wise, learned and compulsive" GQ
