In 1995, before leaving his much-loved home in North Yorkshire to move back to the States for a few years with his family, Bill 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 the nation's public face and private parts (as it were), and to analyse what precisely it was he loved so much about a country that had produced Marmite; a military hero whose dying wish was to be kissed by a fellow named Hardy; place names like Farleigh Wallop, Titsey and Shellow Bowells; people who said 'Mustn't grumble', and Ooh lovely at the sight of a cup of tea and a plate of biscuits; and Gardeners' Question Time. Notes from a Small Island was a huge number-one bestseller when it was first published, and has become the nation's most loved book about Britain, going on to sell over two million copies.

  1. Oslagbar självironi och humor
    Nina S, 29 mars 2016

    En härlig bok för oss anglofiler. Lite kul att läsa den först 20 år efter att han gjorde resan/skrev boken, boken håller fortfarande men man inser samtidigt hur mycket som faktiskt har
    förändrats under den tidsperioden. Rekommenderas! Nu går jag vidare med nästa Bryson...

Not a book that should be read in public, for fear of emitting loud snorts * The Times * Laugh-out-loud funny * The Good Book Guide * Splendid... What's enjoyable is that there's as much of Bryson in here as there is of Britain * Sunday Telegraph * Bryson is funny because he is not afraid to give completely of himself * Daily Express * Astute and funny...a tribute to [Britain's] enchantments by an unabashed anglophile. * New York Times *
