Some say that the first hint that Bill Bryson was not of Planet Earth came when his mother sent him to school in lime-green Capri pants. In this funny memoir, he travels back in time to explore the ordinary kid he once was, and the curious world of 1950s America. This is a book about growing up in a specific time and place.
Bill Bryson is the bestselling author of The Lost Continent, Mother Tongue, Neither Here Nor There, Made in America, Notes From a Small Island, A Walk in the Woods, Notes from a Big Country, Down Under and, most recently, A Short History of Nearly Everything which was shortlisted for the Samuel Johnson Prize, won the Aventis Prize for Science Books in 2004, and won the Descartes Science Communication Prize in 2005.
