Summary:

''Suddenly, in the space of a moment, I realized what it was that I loved about Britain-which is to say, all of it.'' After nearly two decades spent on British soil, Bill Bryson-bestsellingauthor of The Mother Tongue and Made in America-decided to returnto the United States. (''I had recently read,'' Bryson writes, ''that 3.7 millionAmericans believed that they had been abducted by aliens at one time or another,so it was clear that my people ne ...show moreeded me.'') But before departing, he set out ona grand farewell tour of the green and kindly island that had so long been his home. Veering from the ludicrous to the endearing and back again,Notes from a Small Island is a delightfully irreverent jaunt around theunparalleled floating nation that has produced zebra crossings, Shakespeare,Twiggie Winkie's Farm, and places with names like Farleigh Wallop and Titsey.The result is an uproarious social commentary that conveys thetrue glory of Britain, from the satiric pen of an unapologetic Anglophile.
