Bill Bryson: I’m a Stranger Here Myself: Notes on Returning to America After Twenty Years Away. 

This is a book of newspaper columns  Bryson wrote for a British paper after moving back to the States.  It’s a little slip of a book–good for whiling away break-time while knitting.  It isn’t on the whole as funny as A Walk in the Woods or as informative as A Short History of Nearly Everything, but how could it have been.  A few of the columns are particularly funny,  and a few offer great screeds on the failures of American drug policy, environmental policy, and tax policy.  It’s a nice way to kill time at the dentist’s office.
