it was amazing
Read in March, 2011

Bill Bryson has written amusing travelogues about Britain, Australia and the Appalachian Trail, but now he delves into his own journey growing up in Des Moines, Iowa, in the 1950s: his paper route, Jell-O creations at potluck suppers, his mother’s laissez-faire attitude to school permission slips, and memories of his frugal sportswriter father. Bryson’s work is especially recommended on audio, where his dry sense of humor and quirky delivery shine.
