Notes from a Small Island by Bill Bryson

This humorous travel memoir features an American author's journey across the United Kingdom, where he had lived for two decades. Before returning to the United States, he decides to tour the country, using public transportation and staying in small-town accommodations. The book provides an amusing, and at times sarcastic, outsider's perspective on British life, culture, and idiosyncrasies, while also expressing a deep affection for the nation and its people.
