Product description

Review

"Bill Bryson is a true master of popular narrative. Over the course of his career, he has bestowed a beautiful clarity on even the most recondite of subjects...Has history ever been so enjoyable?" (Craig Brown Mail on Sunday)

"A fascinating snapshot of a season during which America, for better or worse, ushered in the modern world." (Sunday Times)

"A gifted raconteur...The book is filled with eccentric, flamboyant characters and memorable stories...highly amusing." (Guardian)

"A great new form of literature: biography of a few months in one country." (Matt Ridley The Times (Books of the Year))

"Few writers of nonfiction, and,let's be honest,few enough writers of novels, can crack the narrative whip like Bryson. One Summer fairly whirls along...full of exhilarating, fact-filled fun...surely the most sublime distraction published this year." (Observer)

Review

'A fascinating snapshot of a season during which America, for better or worse, ushered in the modern world.' (Sunday Times)

'Another winner ... witty and engrossing.' (The Irish Independent)

'Bryson offers delicious detail and breathtaking suspense about events whose outcomes are already known. A glorious look at one summer in America.' (Booklist)

'Few writers of nonfiction, and, let’s be honest, few enough writers of novels, can crack the narrative whip like Bryson. One Summer fairly whirls along ... full of exhilarating, fact-filled fun ... surely the most sublime distraction published this year.' (The Observer)

'...a gripping slice of history with all sorts of reverberant echoes of today ... Bryson, the travel writer turned non-fiction impresario, has now invented what may be an entirely new genre of non-fiction: the brief history of an era told through the biography of a summer. It is a book from which you can read many lessons or just revel in the writing.' (The Times) --This text refers to the Audio CD edition.
