Von grünen Caprihosen, Zigarettenwerbung von Ärzten und dem ersten Farbfernseher Die 1950er Jahre waren Bill Brysons Kindheitsjahre und damit die spannendsten, sorgenfreiesten und idyllischsten Jahre seines Lebens. Weil sie das alles auch für die gesamten Vereinigten Staaten von Amerika waren, hat Bill Bryson gleich zwei Biographien geschrieben: seine eigene und die seines Landes. Denn wer könnte besser und witziger von Lausbubenstreichen und Wirtschaftsboom, von grünen Caprihosen und Hiroshima, von Ärzten, die Zigarettenwerbung machen, und dem ersten Farbfernseher erzählen als Bill Bryson? Ein hinreißend komisches Porträt Amerikas. Wahrscheinlich das witzigste Buch des Jahres!
