By now, readers know that in the hands of Bill Bryson (A Walk in the Woods; At Home), subjects come alive. In his latest lively gambit, this former Midwesterner rejuvenates the American summer of 1927, a season we obviously should have never lost. He populates this bustling age with notables including Charles Lindbergh, Babe Ruth, Al Capone, and Herbert Hoover, but also with walk-ons eccentrics, authors, and actors. To put it simply, One Summer is one festive read, a signature Bryson reminder that, rightly told, history brims with interest.
