Twenty a long time ago, Bill Bryson continued a trip around Britain to find and celebrate that green and pleasant land. The result was Notes at a Small Island, a genuine classic and another of the bestselling travel books ever written. Now he’s traveled about Britain again, by bus and train and rental-car and on foot, to determine what has changed—and what hasn’t.
Following (although not too closely) a route he dubs the Bryson Line, from Bognor Regis within the south to Cape Wrath within the north, by means of places few travelers have you ever gotten to whatsoever, Bryson rediscovers the wondrously beautiful, magnificently eccentric, endearingly singular country which he both celebrates and, when requested, twits. With his matchless instinct to the funniest and quirkiest with his fantastic unerring eye for your idiotic, the bewildering, the appealing, plus the ridiculous, he offers acute and perceptive insights into everything is best and worst about Britain today.
Nothing is a lot more entertaining than Bill Bryson around the road—as well as on a tear. The Road to Little Dribbling reaffirms his stature being a master on the travel narrative—and an extremely, really funny guy.
