Journey into the American Dream
The phenomenal bestseller from the author of Notes From a Small Island.
Bill Bryson has the rare knack of being out of his depth wherever he goes - even (perhaps especially) in the land of his birth! After two decades in England, the world's best-loved travel writer upped sticks with Mrs. Bryson etal and returned to live in the country he had left as a youth.
Bryson brings his inimitable brand of bemused wit to bear on the world's richest and craziest country.
“'One of his best books'”
Scott Bradfield, Independent
“'Delightful bite-size essays that exude affection while debunking the ridiculous with wonderful succinctness...This is not a book to be read in a single sitting. It is one to be savoured'”
Martin Fletcher, The Times
“'Bill Bryson's answer to Alistair Cooke's Letter From America...not only hilarious but also insightful and informative'”
Jeremy Atiyah, Independent on Sunday
“'Bryson is great when explaining the idiosyncracies of America to middle England and making it funny... He is both serious and contemtuously funny'”
