Thunderbolt kid rides again

Bill Bryson has written a warm and funny memoir of being a boy in 1950s/60s Des Moines. It was a time before the chain homogenization of American and towns had their own character. It was also the era of the baby boom and there were a million other kids to play with and get into mischief with. Fun read. Check out The Life and Times of the Thunderbolt Kid: a memoir.


  • My husband and I listened to it on audio book on our big road trip this summer - there were some great stories. I have to read more Bryson, he's hilarious and so smart.
