Readers from Toad Suck, Arkansas, to Idiotsville, Oregon–and everywhere in between–will love Made in America, Bill Bryson’s Informal History of the English Language in the United States. It is, in a word, fascinating. After reading this tour de force, it’s clear that a nation’s language speaks volumes about its true character: you are what you speak. Bryson traces America’s history through the language of the time, then goes on to discuss words culled from everyday activities: immigration, eating, shopping, advertising, going to the movies, and others.
