THE LOST CONTINENT Travels in Small Town America

by | Read by Kerry Shale

Contemporary Culture • 2.25 hrs. • Unabridged Selections • © 2000

Iowa native Bryson returns from several years of residence in the U.K. and takes a long driving trip in the U.S. to see what he's been missing. Not much apparently; he turns his rapier wit on everything and everyone he runs across. Kerry Shale picks up beautifully on Bryson's caffeinated style. He reads billboards! He describes tacky towns! He treats us to tales of family trips with his parsimonious father! He voices glum room clerks and grumpy gas station attendants! An all-you-can-eat adventure in Amish country is a comic vignette in itself. The pace is rapid, but Shale makes sure you don't miss a word, so come along for the ride. J.B.G.
