At Home: A Short History of Private Life, Bill Bryson
1 Bill Bryson At Home: A Short History of Private Life
Doubleday 242904 Australia 2010 0385608276 / 9780385608275 Hardcover Good Condition Good What does history really consists of? Centuries of people quietly going about their daily business - sleeping, eating, having sex, endeavouring to get comfortable. And where did all these normal activities take place? At home. This was the thought that inspired Bill Bryson to start a journey around the rooms of his own house, an 1851 Norfolk rectory, to consider how the ordinary things in life came to be. And what he discovered are surprising connections to anything from the Crystal Palace to the Eiffel Tower, from scurvy to body-snatching,from bedbugs to the Industrial Revolution, and just about everything else that has ever happened, resulting in one of the most entertaining and illuminating books ever written about the history of the way we live. 536 pages. Pages browned. Dust jacket has rubbing and small closed tears to edges. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: 1-2 kilos. Category: History; History; ISBN/EAN: 9780385608275. Inventory No: 242904.

Down Under, Bill Bryson
2 Bill Bryson Down Under
Black Swan 240788 Great Britain 2001 055299703X / 9780552997034 Softcover Good Condition No Dust Jacket It is the driest, flattest, hottest, most desiccated, infertile and climatically aggressive of all the inhabited continents and still Australia teems with life - a large portion of it quite deadly. In fact, Australia has more things that can kill you in a very nasty way than anywhere else. Ignoring such dangers - and yet curiously obsessed by them - Bill Bryson journeyed to Australia and promptly fell in love with the country. And who can blame him? The people are cheerful, extrovert, quick-witted and unfailingly obliging: their cities are safe and clean and nearly always built on water; the food is excellent; the beer is cold and the sun nearly always shines. Life doesn't get much better than this... 397 pages. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 1 kilogram. Category: Travel::Travel & Exploration; Travel & Places; ISBN: 055299703X.

Notes from a Small Island, Bill Bryson
5 Bill Bryson Notes from a Small Island
Black Swan 242902 Great Britain 1998 Reprint 0552996009 / 9780552996006 Softcover Good Condition After nearly two decades in Britain, Bill Bryson, the acclaimed author of such best-sellers as The Mother Tongue and Made in America, decided it was time to move back to the United States for a while. This was partly to let his wife and kids experience life in Bryson's homeland - and partly because he had read that 3.7 million Americans believed that they had been abducted by aliens at one time or another. It was thus clear to him that his people needed him. But before leaving his much-loved home in North Yorkshire, Bryson insisted on taking one last trip around Britain, a sort of valedictory tour of the green and kindly island that had so long been his home. His aim was to take stock of modern-day Britain, and to analyze what he loved so much about a country that had produced Marmite, zebra crossings, and place names like Farleigh Wallop, Titsey, and Shellow Bowells. With characteristic wit and irreverence, Bill Bryson presents the ludicrous and the endearing in equal measure. The result is a hilarious social commentary that conveys the true glory of Britain. 352 pages. Tanning to pages. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 1 kilogram. Category: Travel; Travel & Places; ISBN: 0552996009. ISBN/EAN: 9780552996006. Inventory No: 242902. Paperback
