Quicklet on Bill Bryson's Notes from a Big Country
amazon.co.uk
ABOUT THE BOOK The first time I read a Bill Bryson book, I was not expecting much at all. For many years my family shared a rustic cottage on a lake with all the other members of my mother's family. Entertainment on nice days usually involved swimming, swimming, more swimming, and the occasional nap. On gray days, we read. Over the years four generations of the family left behind a muddled collection of books. When I read through the books I had brought with me, I'd grab whatever my relations had left behind. That's how I first encountered Bill Bryson. I found a well-worn, tattered copy of A Walk in the Woods, left behind by a relative. I picked it up with uncertainty, not sure I was completely interested in a stranger's account of a summer spent hiking the Appalachian Trail. As for a stranger who told that story while trying to be funny? I suspended my disbelief. But, Bryson really was funny. So funny that when I returned home I promptly ordered a copy and made my husband read it. After finishing it, he went out and got still more Bryson books. They were funny, too. That's the first thing that should be said about Bryson, and about Notes from a Big Land: It's a funny book written by a man who has a mastery of funny. MEET THE AUTHOR Peg Robinson holds a BA in Religious Studies from the University of California at Santa Barbara, and has partially completed an MA/PhD in Mythological Studies from Pacifica Graduate Institute. She holds a certificate in copy editing from Media Bistro. Her publishing career started in 1998, on winning a place in Simon and Schuster's Star Trek: Strange New Worlds competition. Her novelette "Tonino and the Incubus" qualified for the 2007 Nebula Awards. She has worked as a content provider, copy writer, informational writer, copy editor, and developmental editor. EXCERPT FROM THE BOOK Notes from a Big Country is the British version of a book published in the United States under the title I'm a Stranger Here, Myself. Both books are compiled of essays written for the British publication, Mail on Sunday's Night and Day, edited by Simon Kelner, a friend and associate of Bryson's. There are extensive differences between the two books. Notes from a Big Country contains a full 78 essays; I'm a Stranger Here, Myself contains only 70. Editorial adjustments were made to take the language and assumptions of each nation into account. An extensive comparison of the two volumes can be found from the Department of Translation Studies, at the University of Tanjere. The linguistic analysis may not interest everyone, but it provides a fairly extensive overview of the changes made in adapting the book for two distinct audiences. There is no question to an American reader that Notes from a Big Country was written for an English audience. While Bryson is on record as considering his identity in England that of an outsider it's impossible to read the essay chapters without realising how deeply Bryson has adapted to English culture. It's equally impossible to miss how profoundly he felt the culture-shock on returning to the United States.Buy a copy to keep reading!

Dear Bill Bryson: Footnotes from a Small Island
amazon.co.uk
An irreverent homage to the '95 travel classic Notes from a Small Island, wherein Ben Aitken retraces Bill Bryson's giant American footsteps as precisely as possible - same hotels, same plates of food, same amount of time in the bath - before finishing outside Bryson's house on Christmas Eve. "It would be wrong to view this book as just a highly accomplished homage to a personal hero. Aitken's politics, as much as his humour, are firmly in the spotlight, and Dear Bill Bryson achieves more than its title (possibly even its author) intended." Manchester Review  read more

An American Abroad: A Short History of Bill Bryson
amazon.co.uk
Bill Bryson is an English national treasure. He is the worlds number one anglophile, and Prince Charles has said There can be no-one who more deserves the title of honorary Englishman than Bill Bryson. But Brysons fascinating life story starts far away from Britain, in Des Moines, the capital of the flat-western state of Iowa. He spent his childhood here creating super hero characters and a local newspaper, the 'Neighbourhood News', which he typed out individually for each reader. He was only seven years old at the time. But for all his juvenile ventures, Bill never took to school, believing teachers kept secret the good stuff and made learning soberly unfathomable. He was less enchanted with Iowa than his parents, and when he finished high school, which he barely attended, he embarked on an adventure on the continent. After falling for the charm and history of Europe, Bryson settled in Britain where his first job was at a psychiatric institution. It is here that he met his wife Cynthia, a nurse. After nipping back to America to finish his bachelors degree, which took some seven years, the Brysons moved back to England and Bill worked for 'The Times' and 'The Independent'. But after developing an immense pleasure in writing these articles, he turned his hands to books. Following the death of his father, he travelled to 38 southern states and wrote 'The Lost Continent Travels in Small-town America' about his disillusionment with the USA. His love for all things British shone through 'Notes From a Small Island', and the works that followed on the etymology of the English language. He is the author of 'A Short History of Nearly Everything', (widely praised for bringing science to the masses), 'Shakespeare: The World as a Stage', and 'Walk in the Woods: Rediscovering America on the Appalachian Trail', which was recently made into a film starring Robert Redford. Despite his American roots, Bill Bryson is the first non-Briton to be awarded Honorary Fellow of the Royal Society, he is an English Heritage Commissioner and has served as Chancellor of Durham University, Englands third oldest university. Bryson now resides in a nineteenth century rectory in Norfolk after living in Yorkshire for many years.

America Loves Bill Bryson, Pornography, Donald Trump, Sex and DENNIS FISH (The Dennis Fish Trilogy Book 1)
amazon.co.uk
This dramatic, earth shattering, spoof biography of invented demigod Dennis Fish is in fact the raw, unedited and super sexy manuscript that later became the book:- Dennis Fish Lives the American Dream: Sex and Drugs and Rock n Roll. It has the highest scatter gun gag count in the history of literature. Told through the eyes of rock music journalist Luca Toscallini (AKA author Darryl John Hazell), we follow Dennis as he blunders his way from one gigantic mishap to another, always oblivious to the carnage he leaves in his wake. Can Dennis really be just a mammoth buffoon ? Or is he a misunderstood incomparable man of vision? Read this hilarious book and make up your own mind. A paperback version of this stunning biography is available too so there can be no excuses for missing out.  read more

The Insight And The Outsight: Images of America of the Authors Paul Watzlawick and Bill Bryson
amazon.co.uk
Seminar paper from the year 2009 in the subject American Studies - Miscellaneous, grade: 1,0, TU Dortmund (Anglistik & Amerikanistik ), course: The Image of America in German Language Literature, language: English, abstract: The reason why I decided to focus on this topic is simple: There areinnumerous images and concepts of America1, written down by an equallyuncountable number of writers from all around the world, also includingcitizens of the United States themselves. Moreover, I tend to believe thatthere is no other country in the world, which had inspired more authors todeal with it in their literature. This might be a result of the well-knownpicture of America as the land of unlimited opportunities, which spreadaround peoples minds ever since the New World had been discovered in1492.As many people still regard America as the promised land, theresurely developed Images of this country, which might not always be true,or at least not as positive as some dreamers might think. Therefore, Idecided to base my essay on the books of two quite critical authors, PaulWatzlawick and Bill Bryson, who present America in a questioning way anddo not simply glorify its social, economical and political structures.Nonetheless, both authors succeed in drawing a rather sympathetic Imageof America. This literary contrast encouraged me to compare both: authorsand novels, but most importantly, the development of their Images ofAmerica.  read more
