Bill Bryson – The Life And Tales Of The Thunderbolt Kid

R70.00


THE No. 1
BESTSELLER
‘Is this the most cheerful book I’ve ever read?…
hilarious… a lovely, happy book’ Evening Standard
Tender, hilarious and true’ The Times
Bill Bryson’s first travel book opened with the immortal line,
‘I come from Des Moines. Somebody had to.’ In this deeply
funny new book, he travels back in time to explore the
ordinary kid he once was, in the curious world of 1950s
America. It was a happy time, when almost everything was
good for you, including DDT, cigarettes and nuclear fallout.
This is a book about one boy’s growing up. But in Bryson’s
hands, it becomes everyone’s story, one that will speak
volumes – especially to anyone who has ever been young.
“Outlandishly and improbably entertaining’
New York Times
“Wittily incisive… like Alan Bennett, Bryson can play the teddy bear
and then deliver a sudden, grizzly-style swipe… might tell us as much
about the oddities of the American way as a dozen think-tanks’
Independent
His greatest gift is as a humorist, so it is the snickers, the guffaws and
the undignified belly laughs he delivers on almost
every page
that
make it worth buying
