***Bill Bryson's African Diary
by Bill Bryson
Reviewed February 1, 2003.
Broadway Books, New York, 2002. 49 pages.
I’m a big fan of Bill Bryson’s books, especially the hilariously funny
I’m a Stranger Here Myself,
he returns to America after many years in England.
Bill Bryson’s African Diary
is a short little book. All
the proceeds go to CARE International. He tells to story of an eight-day
trip he took to Africa, where he visited some of CARE’s projects for helping
the people there.
This won’t give you a comprehensive view of Africa, but it will give
you a small feel of some of the needs in Kenya, and the good work that
CARE is doing. As always with Bill Bryson’s work, you’ll also get some
chuckles along the way.
