Product Description

Review

"A breezy and entertaining account of what it is like to be utterly at sea in a continent most of his readers will regard as familiar" (Independent on Sunday)

"Hugely funny (not snigger-snigger funny, but great-big-belly-laugh-till-you-cry funny)" (Daily Telegraph)

"Undoubtedly the most enjoyable travel book of the year" (Time Out)

"This is the travel book that every Inter-Rail vagrant would love to write; the Animal House of the genre" (New Statesman)

Book Description

Bill Bryson's second, achingly funny book, retracing his own steps as a student backpacking through Europe, twenty years later.

From the Publisher

Bill Bryson's second, achingly funny book, retracing his own steps as a student backpacking through Europe, twenty years later.

From the Back Cover

Bill Bryson's first travel book, The Lost Continent, was unanimously acclaimed as one of the funniest books for years. In Neither Here nor There 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.

Whether braving the homicidal motorists 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 abservations. He even goes to Liechtenstein.

About the Author

Bill 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.
