Some brief overview of this book

William Shakespeare, the most celebrated poet in the English language, left behind nearly a million words of text, but his biography has long been a thicket of wild supposition arranged around scant facts. With a steady hand and his trademark wit, Bill Bryson sorts through this colorful muddle to reveal the man himself. His Shakespeare is like no one elses—the beneficiary of Brysons genial nature, his engaging skepticism, and a gift for storytelling unrivaled in our time.

ndependent for many years before stumbling into bestsellerdom with 1989s The Lost Continent, a sidesplitting account of his rollicking road trip across small-town America. In 1995, he moved his family back to the States so his children could experience being American. However, his deep-rooted Anglophilia won out and, in 2003, the Brysons returned to England. One of those people who finds nearly everything interesting, Bryson has managed to turn his twin loves — travel and language — into a successful literary career. In a string of hilarious bestsellers, he has chronicled his misadventures across England, Europe, Australia, and the U.S., delighting readers with his wry observations and descriptions. Similarly, his books on the history of the English language, infused with the perfect combination of wit and erudition, have sold well. He has received several accolades and honors, including the coveted Aventis Prize for best general science book awarded for his blockbuster A Short History of Nearly Everything. Beloved on both sides of the pond, Bryson makes few claims to write great literature. But he is a writer it is nearly impossible to dislike. We defy anyone to not smile at pithy, epigrammatic opening lines like these: I come from Des Moines. Someone had to.

Biography

A backpacking expedition in 1973 brought Des Moines native Bill Bryson to England, where he met his wife and decided to settle. He wrote travel articles for the English newspapers The Times and The Independent for many years before stumbling into bestsellerdom with 1989s The Lost Continent, a sidesplitting account of his rollicking road trip across small-town America. In 1995, he moved his family back to the States so his children could experience being American. However, his deep-rooted Anglophilia won out and, in 2003, the Brysons returned to England. One of those people who finds nearly everything interesting, Bryson has managed to turn his twin loves — travel and language — into a successful literary career.
