Bill Bryson's first travel book opened with the immortal line, I come from Des Moines. Somebody had to.'

In this deeply funny and personal memoir, he travels back in time to explore the ordinary kid he once was, in the curious world of 1950s Middle America. It was a happy time, when almost everything was good for you, including DDT, cigarettes and nuclear fallout.

This is a book about one boy's growing up. But in Bryson's hands, it becomes everyone's story, one that will speak volumes especially to anyone who has ever been young.
