• Bill Bryson is a true master of popular narrative. Over the course of his career, he has bestowed a beautiful clarity on even the most recondite of subjects...Has history ever been so enjoyable?

    Craig Brown, Mail on Sunday
  • A fascinating snapshot of a season during which America, for better or worse, ushered in the modern world.

    Sunday Times
  • A gifted raconteur...The book is filled with eccentric, flamboyant characters and memorable stories...highly amusing.

  • A great new form of literature: biography of a few months in one country.

    Matt Ridley, The Times (Books of the Year)
  • Few writers of nonfiction, and,let's be honest,few enough writers of novels, can crack the narrative whip like Bryson. One Summer fairly whirls along...full of exhilarating, fact-filled fun...surely the most sublime distraction published this year.
