Praise for At Home

“Delightful . . . Bryson’s enthusiasm brightens any dull corner . . . He is fascinated by everything, and his curiosity is infectious.”
The New York Times Book Review

“If this book doesn’t supply you with five years’ worth of dinner conversation, you’re not paying attention.”

“An exuberant, shared social history . . . Told with Bryson’s habitual brio . . . A personal compendium of fascinating facts, suggesting how the history of houses and domesticity has shaped our lives, language, and ideas.”
The New York Review of Books

“A treasure trove . . . Playful, yes, but Bryson is also a deft historian.”
Los Angeles Times

“The experience of reading a Bill Bryson book is something you don’t want to stop—a pip and a spree and, almost incidentally, a serious education. And never tiresome, for Bryson has the gift of being the student and not the tutor.”
The Washington Post

“Readers who enjoyed Mr. Bryson’s apparently inexhaustible supply of nifty facts in such previous books as A Short History of Nearly Everything . . . will be happy to find the author’s pen as nimble and his narrative persona as genial as ever.”
The Wall Street Journal

“Reading Bill Bryson is like having one of those friends around who’s always discovering something new—some pastime or place or piece of information—and can’t wait to breathlessly pass it along.”
The Dallas Morning News
