內容簡介

知名旅遊作家Bill Bryson時隔20年,推出暢銷經典Notes from a Small Island續集!

1995年,Bill Bryson在英國踏上長達數週的旅行,決定在離開已定居超過20年的「異鄉」、帶著家人返回美國前,好好的跟這塊土地道別。這趟旅程的產物、寫給英國的「情書」Notes from a Small Island甫推出即大受好評,以幽默爆笑的內容、對英國民情的精闢分析與充滿情感的描述,在BBC一項民調中甚至被票選為「最能代表英國的書」榜首!

現在,Bryson再度踏上英國,重新探索這個美麗無比、極度古怪又獨特的迷人國家。他的旅程從英國南方的博格諾里吉斯 (Bognor Regis) 到北端的拉斯角 (Cape Wrath),走的是他個人將其取作「Bryson路線」的私房旅遊方式,多數人都從未探訪過。即使在20年之後,許多地方早已不如往昔,變得難以辨認,Bryson仍很樂意把這座多雨的小島當作自己的家鄉。

Bill Bryson以一如往常的敏銳洞察力與幽默感,再度以風趣的筆調描寫英國的怪奇、荒謬、與迷人之處。時隔多年的強勢回歸,Bryson帶來的不只是對當今英國精闢入裡的分析,更是令讀者愛不釋手、包準讓讀者捧腹大笑的現代經典!


Twenty years ago, Bill Bryson went on a trip around Britain to celebrate the green and kindly island that had become his adopted country. The hilarious book that resulted, Notes from a Small Island, was taken to the nation’s heart and became the bestselling travel book ever, and was also voted in a BBC poll the book that best represents Britain.Now, to mark the twentieth anniversary of that modern classic, Bryson makes a brand-new journey round Britain to see what has changed.

Following (but not too closely) a route he dubs the Bryson Line, from Bognor Regis to Cape Wrath, by way of places that many people never get to at all, Bryson sets out to rediscover the wondrously beautiful, magnificently eccentric, endearingly unique country that he thought he knew but doesn’t altogether recognize any more. Yet, despite Britain’s occasional failings and more or less eternal bewilderments, Bill Bryson is still pleased to call our rainy island home. And not just because of the cream teas, a noble history, and an extra day off at Christmas.

Once again, with his matchless homing instinct for the funniest and quirkiest, his unerring eye for the idiotic, the endearing, the ridiculous and the scandalous, Bryson gives us an acute and perceptive insight into all that is best and worst about Britain today.
