Краткое описание

One Summer: America, 1927.

Beloved on both sides of the Atlantic and Down Under for such insightful books as Notes from a Small Island, I'm a Stranger Here Myself, In a Sunburned Country, and A Short History of Nearly Everything, which earned him the Aventis and Descartes Prizes, Bill Bryson this time takes us back to a remarkable summer. Beginning with Charles Lindbergh's solo flight, May 20–21, the summer of 1927 also saw Babe Ruth's assault on the home run record (culminating with his 60th on September 30), Queens housewife Ruth Snyder's sensational murder trial, and Alvin "Shipwreck" Kelly's 12-day stay atop a flagpole in New Jersey. Meanwhile, Commerce Secretary Herbert Hoover supervised relief efforts in the Great Mississippi Flood and was nominated for the Presidency; Al Capone tightened his grip on the illegal booze business in Chicago; Al Jolson filmed the first "talking picture," The Jazz Singer; and a secret meeting on Long Island of four powerful bankers virtually guaranteed a future financial crash. Bryson vividly evokes the outsized personalities, exciting events, and occasional just plain weirdness of a signal moment in American history."Bryson is a marvelous historian, not only exhaustively accurate, but highly entertaining. If you avoid textbook histories because they seem too dry, pick up One Summer, or any other of Mr. Bryson's books. They are intelligent delights."—Huffington Post
