    Over the course of two deft, detailed pages Bryson gives you such a good summary of its wicked workings that you almost miss the sentence about its having come and gone in just eight months back in He uses a series of fascinating case studies to show how nations managed existential challenges like civil war, foreign threats, and general malaise. By looking at the cover, I was certain this was going to be a little bit more atmospheric. The book focuses on various key events of that summer as lenses through which to view American life: what it had recently been and what it was becoming. Rose calls for her mother, who runs full-tilt into the lake to save the girl. Share via Email A gifted raconteur … Bill Bryson.

    A few people, believing the book is aimed at younger readers because it is a Caldecott Honor Book, have been shocked to find that the award winning graphic novel is intended for audiences age 12 and up. Windy is cute, in her own way but gets really childish all the time. Unfortunately, that finely calibrated sense of subtlety doesn't carry all the way through. The book is a history of the summer of in the United States. Against this brush-stroke backdrop stand Rose and the other impeccably cartooned characters, whose stylized simplicity relatively speaking; no sense that these are real people is lost when juxtaposed with those wall-of-sound environments makes them feel like inner tubes bobbing in the water, or stones tossed in it.

    In the aftermath, nothing is completely resolved, but secrets have been aired, which means that things are at least a bit better for everyone. Rose and her parents, as every summer since a young age, are spending the season at Awago, where there are beaches, fresh air and where she made a good friend, Windy. This year, for the first time, the library association promoted a rebelreader Twitter tournament. It seems like everyone I know has read this book. It was published in October by Doubleday.

Enter Shipwreck Kelly, a Manhattan sailor who climbed to the top of a 50ft flagpole on the roof of Newark's St Francis hotel and… sat there… And sat there… And sat there… And people flocked to see him.

Unfortunately, that finely calibrated sense of subtlety doesn't carry all the way through. In the end, despite its almost pages, One Summer seems curiously slight; Bryson has little interest in analysis beyond the jocular aside, and his connections are narrative, rather than thematic or critical.

Fortunately the two hinges on which Bryson hangs his story are sturdy enough to carry all this surplus weight. The backstory comes out afterwards, when Rose and Windy's mothers, wrapped in blankets and sipping wine while their daughters are believed to sleep, discuss the miscarriage Alice experienced while swimming at that very beach last summer.

Throughout This One Summer, Jillian's art is like Proust's madeleine, calling to mind half-forgotten memories with real sensual power. An examination of past Caldecott winners and honorees reveals that most of the recipients created books for the younger end of the age range.

Rose, like all of us, is trying to make sense of these scenes, and the feelings they elicit, as best she can. We get to a certain age, and we stand on the shore, observing them. Bryson remembers her, though, and wants us to know that over the course of one day she broke six national swimming records.

Along the way, Bryson also peers down some darker alleys: it wasn't all jazz, cocktails, flagpole-sitting one of the decade's more aberrant pastimesand dancing the charleston.
