Published nearly 30 years ago, Bill Bryson's endlessly entertaining Notes From a Small Island was an instant bestseller, introducing readers to a version of this sceptered isle rarely seen.

Delve into the heart of our green and pleasant land with this engaging and unmissable production that captures the magical joy of the memoir, and much more.

Notes on Notes From a Small Island

Voted the book that best represents England by the venerable listeners of Radio 4, Notes From a Small Island was published back in 1995 and saw Bill navigate the country from Calais to the Highlands. A love letter to the country and its people, it topped the best seller lists for three years and sold over 2 million copies.
