Bill Bryson is a widely admired nonfiction writer whose books on travel, history, science, and the English language are laugh-out-loud funny and astonishingly scholarly at the same time. His many bestsellers include At Home: A Short History of Private Life (2010), a Washington Post "Best Book of the Year;" A Short History of Nearly Everything (2004), winner of the Aventis Prize for science writing; I'm a Stranger Here Myself (1999); and A Walk in the Woods: Rediscovering America on the Appalachian Trail (1998). His new book is One Summer: America, 1927 (2013), about a pivotal time in America's national "coming of age."
