9780552997867: Notes from a Big Country

From perfectly formed potatoes to adulterous US presidents, and from domestic upsets to millennial fever, Bill Bryson just cannot resist airing his opinions and standing up for his (mostly) law-abiding fellow American citizens. But of course after twenty years in England, he is now back on the other side of the pond, and is obviously having a little trouble finding his true American self again. After vigorous exercise on the Appalachian Trail comes this edited collection of Bryson's most splenetic comic pieces culled from his humorous regular column in the Mail on Sunday.

From the Inside Flap:

From perfectly formed potatoes to adulterous U.S. presidents, and from domestic upsets to millennial fever, Bill Bryson just cannot resist airing his opinions on his fellow Americans. After twenty years in England, Bryson is now back on the other side of the pond, and is obviously having a little trouble finding his true American self again.

With his trademark wit, Bryson bemusedly examines that strangest of phenomena: the American way of life. Whether he is discussing the dazzling efficiency of the garbage disposal unit, the comical sight of oneself in shorts, or the jaw-slackening direness of what's on TV, all topics receive the inimitable Bryson treatment.

This collection of comic pieces, taken from his regular column in The Mail on Sunday's Night and Day magazine, will delight Bryson's ever-growing legion of fans.

From the Back Cover:

"A compendium of wisecracks and jibes so hilarious that it was often difficult to remain upright while reading it." -- Toronto Star

"One can't read Bill Bryson's Notes from a Big Country without a great deal of amusement, mixed with admiration for his seemingly effortless skill in eliciting it." -- Globe and Mail

Book Description Random House. Book Condition: New. pp. xiii + 400 , Figures Bill Bryson has the rare knack of being out of his depth wherever he goes - even (perhaps especially) in the land of his birth. This became all too apparent when, after nearly two decades in England, the world's best-loved travel writer upped sticks with Mrs Bryson, little Jimmy et al. and returned to live in the country he had left as a youth. Of course there were things Bryson missed about Blighty but any sense of loss was countered by the joy of rediscovering some of the forgotten treasures of his childhood : the glories of a New England autumn; the pleasingly comical sight of oneself in s.
