Overview

Bill Bryson is the megastar of curious, inquisitive, entertaining writing. Whatever the topic, he manages to make it come to life for the reader, as if he or she was the one doing all the exploring. A Short History Of Nearly Everything revealed a few mind-blowing facts about the universe and showed us even more reasons to be grateful than we already knew were out there.

At Home is a historic sketch of "private life" – you know, what happens behind those precious four walls we all call home. Bill takes you on a tour of his house, telling a story in each room about how it grew into the purpose we know and use it for today.
