One day, while lounging in his Victorian house in the UK, Bill Bryson realized that our houses, the place where we spend much of our lives, possess back-stories that we never examine. Ruminating a bit more, he decided that an ambitious writer such as himself might indeed construct a history of the world without leaving home. This is that history. When first published in 2010, At Home was an instant bestseller and then a resilient hit. There is no mystery why: Bryson possesses an acute curiosity combined with a lively gift for gab. This special new edition expands that much-praised original with 200 carefully chosen illustrations.
