Neither Here nor There
Black Swan(September 1991)
In NEITHER HERE NOR THERE, Bill brings his unique brand of humour to bear on Europe as he retraces his travels around the continent as a student twenty years previously. 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 observations. He even goes to Liechtenstein.
