Book review: MADE IN AMERICA by Bill Bryson


Book review:

MADE IN AMERICA: An Informal History of the English Language in the United States  (1994) by Bill Bryson

This is a very enjoyable nonfiction book that I keep coming back to.
Bryson delves into the history of uniquely American language and culture, and the facts he uncovers are both funny and fascinating.

For example: where does the word "hamburger" really come from? What's the origin of slang terms like "hepcat"?

You'll love this book. I promise it.
