Recensioner i media
`The best correspondent of our generation.' Jon Snow `If you are searching for a book to describe the current mood in America, look no further.You would expect Matt Frei to demonstrate his skill as a brilliant reporter, but "Only in America" is also surprisingly funny. He moves from high politics to daily life with an engaging confidence, and he almost convinced me that it is possible to understand what they are up to.' John Sergeant `Frei navigates the capital's "didactic" architecture, power-brokers and influential think-tanks with the same Bill Bryson-esque sardonic humour that he applies to the White House press etiquette...While cynical of Bush's competence Frei clearly enjoys the razzmatazz that surrounds high office.' Financial Times `An excellent, quirky guide to Washington life...it is also a memoir of America in the post 9/11 Dubya year. Frei has a felicitous turn of phrase and his observations are always insightful and sometimes extremely funny.' Sunday Express
