Author Info
Bill Bryson
Born in Des Moines in 1951, Bill Bryson left for England in 1973 between semesters at Drake University. What began as a summer abroad became a 20-year sojourn: he got married and started a family, and began a career in journalism, taking writing posts at the Times and the Independent. He also laid the foundations for what would become a highly successful travel-writing career. Returning to the United States in 1989, Bryson chronicled an inspired visitation of the family vacations of his youth, which resulted in THE LOST CONTINENT. At first wary of Bryson's often self-deprecating and wry humor, critics have since been won over by his consistency, energy, and humor. He has produced a number of travelogues, all with his hallmark wit and attention to detail. In addition to his writings on travel, Bryson has also written and contributed to texts on language. Often ranked with Theroux and company--and sporting his own fan club--Bryson lives in Hanover, New Hampshire, with his family.
