New York: Doubleday, 2013. First United States Edition [stated], First Printing [stated]. Hardcover. Very good/Very good. John Fontana (Jacket Design). [14], 509, [5] pages. Notes on Sources and Further Reading. Bibliography. Photography Credits. Index. DJ has slight wear and soiling. Corners of a couple of pages creased. William McGuire Bryson OBE HonFRS (/ bra s n/; born 8 December 1951) is an Anglo-American author of books on travel, the English language, science, and other non-fiction topics. Born in the United States, he has been a resident of Britain for most of his adult life, returning to the United States between 1995 and 2003. He served as the chancellor of Durham University from 2005 to 2011. Bryson came to prominence in the United Kingdom with the publication of Notes from a Small Island (1995), an exploration of Britain, and its accompanying television series. He received widespread recognition again with the publication of A Short History of Nearly Everything (2003), a book widely acclaimed for its accessible communication of science. Derived from a Kirkus review: A popular chronicler of life and lore vividly charts a particularly pivotal season in American history. Bryson reanimates the events and principal players across five key months in 1927. He establishes an early-20th-century, trial-and-error chronology of aviation evolution cresting with Charles Lindbergh. Braided into Lindbergh's saga are profiles of cultural icons like Herbert Hoover, Al Capone, and baseball players Lou Gehrig and Babe Ruth. Bryson enthusiastically draws on the heroic lives of President Calvin Coolidge and Jack Dempsey and artfully interweaves into Lindbergh's meteoric rise the pitfalls of Prohibition. Collectively, what Bryson offers is a creatively written regeneration of historical facts; the revelations, while few, appear in the form of eccentric personal factoids demarcating that scrutinized summer of dreamers and innovators. Bryson's American pride saturates this rewarding book. A distinctively drawn time capsule from a definitive epoch.

One Summer: America, 1927 by Bill Bryson, SIGNED 1st Edition, 1st Printing, Hardcover, Publisher: Doubleday (2013), 528 pages: English ---- Like New. The book and dust jacket are clean, secure binding, crisp inner pages, unmarked, no writing, no highlighting, no stains, no rips, no edge chipping, no page folds, no remainder marks, not ex-library. Very faint to indiscernible signs of dust jacket wear from storage and handling. Free USA Shipping ---- A Chicago Tribune Noteworthy Book & A GoodReads Reader's Choice. In One Summer Bill Bryson, one of our greatest and most beloved nonfiction writers, transports readers on a journey back to one amazing season in American life. The summer of 1927 began with one of the signature events of the twentieth century: on May 21, 1927, Charles Lindbergh became the first man to cross the Atlantic by plane nonstop, and when he landed in Le Bourget airfield near Paris, he ignited an explosion of worldwide rapture and instantly became the most famous person on the planet. Meanwhile, the titanically talented Babe Ruth was beginning his assault on the home run record, which would culminate on September 30 with his sixtieth blast, one of the most resonant and durable records in sports history. In between those dates a Queens housewife named Ruth Snyder and her corset-salesman lover garroted her husband, leading to a murder trial that became a huge tabloid sensation. Alvin "Shipwreck" Kelly sat atop a flagpole in Newark, New Jersey, for twelve days—a new record. The American South was clobbered by unprecedented rain and by flooding of the Mississippi basin, a great human disaster, the relief efforts for which were guided by the uncannily able and insufferably pompous Herbert Hoover. Calvin Coolidge interrupted an already leisurely presidency for an even more relaxing three-month vacation in the Black Hills of South Dakota. The gangster Al Capone tightened his grip on the illegal booze business through a gaudy and murderous reign of terror and municipal corruption. The first true "talking picture," Al Jolson's The Jazz Singer, was filmed and forever changed the motion picture industry. The four most powerful central bankers on earth met in secret session on a Long Island estate and made a fateful decision that virtually guaranteed a future crash and depression. All this and much, much more transpired in that epochal summer of 1927, and Bill Bryson captures its outsized personalities, exciting events, and occasional just plain weirdness with his trademark vividness, eye for telling detail, and delicious humor. In that year America stepped out onto the world stage as the main event, and One Summer transforms it all into narrative nonfiction of the highest order.
