growing up in the 1950s

I enjoyed the last audio book by Bill Bryson so much — A Short History of Nearly Everything — that I followed up by listening to his latest book:

A Memoir

The Life and Times of the Thunderbolt Kid: A Memoir

It’s back to the much loved Bryson comedy. But this time, the funny stories are nostalgic commentary on growing up in American in the 1950s.

He recounts meeting the infamous Stephen Katz, for the first time.

I loved the book. Bryson is a few years older than myself. But some of the experiences paralleled my own upbringing in Calgary, Canada.
