The Lost Continent, Bill Bryson's savagely funny account of his journey back to his roots in small-town USA, took Britain by a storm of guffaws. It was followed by Neither Here Nor There, in which Bryson applied his unique brand of wry humour to the foibles of Continental Europe and the Europeans. Both books have rarely been absent from the bestseller lists since. Now Bryson, who moved to England seventeen years ago and settled in North Yorkshire with his family, turns an affectionate but ironic eye on his adopted country. Britain will never seem the same again.
