Road to Little Dribbling: adventures of an American in Britain, The
(Bryson, Bill )
A sequel to Notes From a Small Island stands as the author's tribute to his adopted country of England and describes his riotous return visit two decades later to rediscover the country, its people and its culture. In 1995, Bill Bryson got into his car and took a weeks-long farewell motoring trip about England before moving his family back to the United States. The book about that trip, Notes from a Small Island, is uproarious and endlessly endearing, one of the most acute and affectionate portrayals of England in all its glorious eccentricity ever written. Two decades later, he set out again to rediscover that country, and the result is The Road to Little Dribbling. Nothing is funnier than Bill Bryson on the road; prepare for the total joy and multiple episodes of unseemly laughter.
