Description

Notes from a Small Island is New York Times bestseller Bill Bryson's irreverent and hilarious journey through the beloved island nation he called home for two decades. From Downing Street to Loch Ness, this is a delightful look at the United Kingdom.

Bryson, one of today's most entertaining travel writers, gives students a wonderful jaunt around the unparalleled floating nation that has produced zebra crossings, Shakespeare, Twiggie Winkie's Farm, and places with names like Farleigh Wallop and Titsey. Veering from the ludicrous to the endearing and back again, Notes from a Small Island is Bryson's grand farewell tour of the green and kindly island that had so long been his home.

"Astute and funny-an amusing guide to the U.K.'s foibles, as well as a tribute to its enchantments, by an unabashed Anglophile."--New York Times Book Review
