The Life and Times of the Thunderbolt Kid

Bill Bryson was born in the middle of the American century - 1951 - in the middle of the United States - Des Moines, lowa - in the middle of largest generation in American history - the baby boomers. Like millions of his generational peers, Bill Bryson had a rich fantasy life as a superhero - “The Thunderbolt Kid”. Using this persona as a springboard, Bill Bryson re-creates the life of his family and his native city in the 1950s in all its transcendent normality - a life at once completely familiar to us all and as far away and unreachable as another galaxy.
