Description
Twenty years ago, Bill Bryson went on a trip around Britain to discover and celebrate that green and pleasant land, the result being Notes from a Small Island, a true classic and one of the bestselling travel books ever written. Happily, he has traveled about the countryside again—by bus and train, by rental car and on foot—to see what has changed, and what hasn't. With his matchless instinct for the funniest and quirkiest, and his unerring eye for the idiotic, the bewildering, the appealing, and the ridiculous, Bryson offers this loving and hilarious (if occasionally spiky) valentine to his adopted country. Prepare for total joy and multiple episodes of unseemly laughter.

"There were moments when I snorted out loud with laughter while reading this book in public.... He can be as gloriously silly as ever."—Times (London)

"Bryson concocts another trip through his homeland of 40 years by determining the longest distance one could travel in Britain in a straight line.... This being Bryson, one chuckles every couple of pages, of course, saying, 'yup, that sounds about right,' to his curmudgeonly commentary on everything from excess traffic and litter to rude sales clerks. One also feels the thrum of wanderlust as Bryson encounters another gem of a town or pip of a pub. And therein lies the charm of armchair traveling with Bryson. He clearly adores his adopted country. There are no better views, finer hikes, more glorious castles, or statelier grounds than the ones he finds, and Bryson takes readers on a lark of a walk across this small island with megamagnetism."—Booklist (starred review)
