Bill Bryson's first travel book, The Lost Continent, was unanimously
acclaimed as one of the funniest books in years. In Neither Here nor There
he brings his unique brand of humour to bear on Europe as he shoulders his
backpack, keeps a tight hold on his wallet, and journeys from Hammerfest,
the northernmost town on the continent, to Istanbul on the cusp of Asia.
Fluent in, oh, at least one language, he retraces his travels as a student
twenty years before. Whether braving the homicidal motorists of Paris,
being robbed by gypsies in Florence, attempting not to order tripe and
eyeballs in a German restaurant or window-shopping in the sex shops of the
Reeperbahn, Bryson takes in the sights, dissects the culture and
illuminates each place and person with his hilariously caustic
observations. He even goes to Liechtenstein.
