Back cover copy

Bill Bryson's first travel book, The Lost Continent, was unanimously acclaimed as one of the funniest books for years. In Neither Here nor There he brings his unique brand of humour to bear on Europe as he shoulders his backpack, keeps a tight hold on his wallet, and journeys from Hammerfest, the northernmost town on the continent, to Istanbul on the cusp of Asia. Fluent in, oh, at least one language, he retraces his travels as a student twenty years before, dissecting the cultures of the continent with typical Bryson hilarity and caustic observation. He even goes to Liechtenstein. Read by Mike McShane, a well known comic actor and impersonator, who was a regular on Whose Line is it Anyway? for several years. Abridged, running time approximately 3 hoursshow more
