2. I'm a Stranger Here Myself: Notes on Returning to America After 20 Years Away
by Bill Bryson

Inside the book flap: “After two decades in England, Bill Bryson has relocated to Hanover, New Hampshire. In this collection (drawn from dispatches for London's Night & Day magazine), he's writing from home, in close proximity to wife and family. We find a happy marriage between humor and reflection as he assesses life both in New England and in the contemporary United States. With the telescopic perspective of one who's stepped out of the American mainstream and come back after 20 years, Bryson aptly holds the mirror up to U.S. culture, capturing its absurdities--such as hotlines for dental floss, the cult of the lawsuit, and strange American injuries such as those sustained from pillows and beds. ‘In the time it takes you to read this,’ he writes, ‘four of my fellow citizens will somehow manage to be wounded by their bedding.’”
