Bill Bryson’s first travel book, The Lost Continent, was unanimously acclaimed as one of the funniest books in years. In Neither Here nor There he brings his unique brand of humour to bear on Europe as he shoulders his backpack, keeps a tight hold on his wallet, and journeys from Hammerfest, the northernmost town on the continent, to Istanbul on the cusp of Asia. Fluent in, oh, at least one language, he retraces his travels as a student twenty years before. Whether braving the homicidal motorists of Paris, being robbed by gypsies in Florence, attempting not to order tripe and eyeballs in a German restaurant or window-shopping in the sex shops of the Reeperbahn, Bryson takes in the sights, dissects the culture and illuminates each place and person with his hilariously caustic observations. He even goes to Liechtenstein.

Travelling with Stephen Katz—also his wonderful sidekick in A Walk in the Woods—he wanders from Hammerfest in the far north, to Istanbul on the cusp of Asia. As he makes his way round this incredibly varied continent, he retraces his travels as a student twenty years before with caustic hilarity.

Having seen Europe with a rucksack on his back and a youthful spring in his step twenty years earlier, Bill Bryson decides to make a sentimental journey back to that familiar territory - to savour once more the complexities of the Thomas Cook European timetable, to wander perilously through the minefields of linguistic confusion and through innumerable European cities in search of a room for the night and a good square meal. With characteristic caustic wit and a cynical eye, he suffers the worst of the weather, every known peculiarity of every country he visits (and several unrecorded oddities) and in the process creates an unforgettably incisive, honest, and funny portrait of modern Europe.

Der bekannte Reiseschriftsteller Bill Bryson (Robert Redford) möchte sich nicht in ein langweiliges Rentnerleben verabschieden. Allen Warnungen seiner liebevollen Frau Catherine (Emma Thompson) und seiner Kinder zum Trotz will er sich ein letztes Mal in ein Abenteuer stürzen und zu Fuß den Appalachian Trail bezwingen, einen 3.500 Kilometer langen Wanderweg quer durch die USA. Die Probleme beginnen allerdings bereits bei der Suche nach einem geeigneten Wanderpartner. Der einzige, der sich mit ihm auf die Reise machen möchte, ist ausgerechnet sein schon lang entfremdeter Schulfreund Stephen Katz (Nick Nolte), ein ehemaliger Alkoholiker, der für das gewagte Vorhaben neben einer schlechten Kondition auch zu viele Kilos mitbringt. Dennoch macht sich das ungleiche Gespann auf den Weg in die atemberaubende amerikanische Wildnis und findet hierbei nicht nur eine alte Freundschaft wieder sondern vor allem auch zu sich selbst.
