In “At Home: A Short History of Private Life,” Bryson decides to learn about the ordinary things of life by exploring each room in his converted 19th-century church rectory in Norfolk, England. From the blood and wars that put salt and pepper on our table to the baffling mysteries that put shoes on our feet, At Home is Bryson’s most historic journey yet—the history of the way we live. Bryson is the author of A Walk in the Woods and A Short History of Nearly Everything.
