    Beschreibung von Audible

    Award-winning and highly acclaimed author Bill Bryson delivers a captivating performance in his narration of his novel One Summer: America 1927. Bryson’s deeply researched novel captures the importance of unconnected events in the American summer of 1927 that became significant milestones in modern history. This complete and unabridged historical audiobook from Audible Studios delves into this summer at many angles - from seeing the face of aviation and international travel change forever, to the booming peak for those living blissfully unaware of the dawn of the Great Depression that would soon be upon them all. Available now from Audible.

    Inhaltsangabe

    Audible is proud to present One Summer: America, 1927, the new book by Britain’s favourite writer of narrative nonfiction, Bill Bryson.

    Narrated by the man himself, One Summer takes you to the summer when America came of age, took centre stage, and changed the world forever. In the summer of 1927, America had a booming stock market, a president who worked just four hours a day, a semi-crazed sculptor with a plan to carve four giant heads into a mountain called Rushmore, a devastating flood of the Mississippi, a sensational murder trial, and a youthful aviator named Charles Lindbergh who started the summer wholly unknown, and finished it as the most famous man on Earth.

    It was the summer of the first talking pictures, the invention of television, the peak of Al Capone's reign of terror, the ill-conceived decision that led to the Great Depression, and the thrillingly improbable return to greatness of a wheezing, over-the-hill baseball player named Babe Ruth.

    With an unforgettable cast of personalities, Bill Bryson spins a story of brawling adventure, reckless optimism, and delirious energy. What a country; what a summer; and what a writer to bring it all so vividly to life.

    Bill Bryson was born in Des Moines, Iowa, in 1951; he moved to and settled in England in 1977, working in journalism until becoming a full-time author. Bryson is much-loved for his best-selling travel books, from The Lost Continent to Down Under, and Notes from a Small Island earned a particularly special place in the nation's heart - a national poll for World Book Day voted it the book that best represents Britain. A Short History of Nearly Everything won the Aventis Prize for Science Books and the Descartes Science Communication Prize. Bryson has also written a memoir, The Life and Times of the Thunderbolt Kid, and acclaimed books on language and social history (Mother Tongue, Made in America, At Home).

    He lives in the UK with his wife and family, and was awarded an honorary OBE for services to literature.

    Simply great

    As always Bryson delivers a great amount of wisdom yet never dryly written. Captivating from the first page till the last and always making you feel like your living in this time period. I wish these books would never end...
