1927. O vara care a schimbat lumea

Author: Bill Bryson Format: eBook Release Date: 16/01/1900

In vara anului 1927, America avea o bursa prospera, un presedinte care lucra doar patru ore pe zi (si dormea cam tot restul timpului), un sculptor pe jumatate nebun ce planuia sa ciopleasca patru capete gigantice in stanca inaccesibilului munte Rushmore, o revarsare devastatoare a apelor fluviului Mississippi si un tanar aviator necunoscut pe nume Charles Lindbergh, care urma sa devina cel mai celebru om din lume. A fost vara cand a aparut filmul sonor, s-a inventat televiziunea, teroarea lui Al Capone a ajuns la apogeu si s-a luat decizia nechibzuita care a dus la Marea Depresiune. Cu umorul sau inconfundabil, Bill Bryson readuce la viata vara aceea uitata, in care America s-a maturizat, a pasit in centrul scenei si a schimbat lumea pentru totdeauna.
