Dear Bill Bryson: Footnotes from a Small Island

by Ben Aitken - £9.99  Icon Books (2022)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781785788253 | ISBN 10: 1785788256

An irreverent homage to the '95 travel classic, from the author of The Gran Tour.
 
"It would be wrong to view this book as just a highly accomplished homage to a personal hero. Aitken's politics, as much as his humour, are firmly in the spotlight, and Dear Bill Bryson achieves more than its title (possibly even its author) intended."
~ Manchester Review
 
In 2013, travel writer Ben Aitken decided to follow in the footsteps of his hero – literally – and started a journey around the UK, tracing the trip taken by Bill Bryson in his classic tribute to the British Isles, Notes from a Small Island.
 
Staying at the same hotels, ordering the same food, and even spending the same amount of time in the bath, Aitken's homage – updated and with a new preface for 2022 – is filled with wit, insight and humour.
