Bill Bryson is a popular travel writer who lived in Britain for two decades. He wrote this book before moving back to the USA. Anyone who has been to England can relate to this book and it might make you homesick. Or you might want to hop on a plane and visit. The villages and the people are all delightfully funny and are heard to say “I’m terribly sorry but” a lot. He includes a glossary of terms like: “lay-by Parking area beside a highway, often used as a depository for unwanted mattresses and other household rubbish”. I really enjoyed this book and have my own copy.
