About the book

In summer 1927, America had a booming stock market, a president who worked just fourhours a day (and slept much of the rest), a devastating flood of the Mississippi, asensational murder trial, and an unknown aviator named Charles Lindbergh who becamethe most famous man on earth.It was the summer that saw the birth of talking pictures, the invention of television, thepeak of Al Capone's reign of terror, the horrifying bombing of a school in Michigan, thethrillingly improbable return to greatness of over-the-hill baseball player Babe Ruth, andan almost impossible amount more.In this hugely entertaining book, Bill Bryson spins a tale of brawling adventure, recklessoptimism and delirious energy. With the trademark brio, wit and authority that make himBritain's favourite writer of narrative non-fiction, he brings to life a forgotten summerwhen America came of age, took centre stage, and changed the world.
