Bill Bryson's first travel book, The Lost Continent, was unanimously acclaimed as one of the funniest books for 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, window-shopping in the sex shops of the Reeperbahn or disputing his hotel bill in Copenhagen, Bryson takes in the sights, dissects the culture and illuminates each place and person with his hilariously caustic abservations. He even goes to Liechtenstein.

The fabulously funny ramble of Bill Bryson, American tourist, inter-railing around Europe. He looks back at a trip he took in 1972 and compares it favourably- but mostly because he doesn't have unendurable high school companion Stephen Katz in tow. How does he make it so hilariously funny when as often as not he gets an awful hotel, overpriced meals, and spends nearly all his time on trains? You will cry with laughter at this. (Kirkus UK)
