Contains Waterstones exclusive Q&A with Bill Bryson

Twenty years on from Notes From A Small Island, the charming writer, Bill Bryson, has toured the British Isles again – taking with him his much-loved insight and wit.

Follow his hilarious journey round some of the smallest, most out-of-the-way, and, in some cases, down-right odd, places on the British map and explore with him what has changed over these last two decades. As usual, Bryson’s writing is not just amusing it is full of astute observations and wisdom too.

Here are a few quotations to give a taste of what makes The Road to Little Dribbling such a delightful read :

“If you are from another country, you may need to be told that the New Forest isn't in fact new and is not altogether a Forest." 

“According to Time Out at any given moment there are 600,000 people on the London underground, making it both a larger and more interesting place than Oslo."

"People come from all over Britain to experience Lyndhurst's famous traffic jams, often without intending to."   

“It has occurred to me that Lyndhurst may not receive fourteen thousand different vehicles a day, but just a couple of thousand going round and round again." 

“Finally there is Cornwall, which isn't a county at all but a duchy – a distinction which the Cornish are very sensitive about. (You could say that it is a touchy duchy)."  

“Bryson is at his best.  The funniest travel book I’ve read all year.” - The Sunday Telegraph

“on form”

Less a travel book, more a collection of essays and anecdotes stitched together. But in his sixties now so can forgive Bryson for not wanting to rough it on the road for long. Lucid and mirthful as ever. Recently read... More
