By Bill Bryson. The world’s most celebrated author left behind nearly a million words of text, but his biography has long been a thicket of wild supposition arranged around scant facts. With a steady hand and his trademark wit, Bill Bryson sorts through this colorful muddle to reveal the man himself. Emulating the style of his renowned travelogs, the author records episodes in his research, celebrating Shakespeare as a writer of unimaginable talent and enormous inventiveness with a keen ear for language, and a coiner of phrases that still have common currency.
