I highly recommend any book written by David Nicholls, and put this one at the top of the list. Us" won't give you profound insights into the meaning of life, but it will raise your spirits and help you realize that family relationships can be dysfunctional and still produce some tender moments.

Ernie's America book. During his travels throughout America, Pyle wrote thousands of columns. Here, Nichols has culled the best of what he wrote and organized it by sections of the country.

It’s 1988 and Dexter Mayhew and Emma Morley have only just met on the night of their graduation. Tomorrow they must go their separate ways. But after only one day together, they cannot stop thinking about one another. Brian Jackson, a working-class kid on full scholarship, has started his first term at university. He has a dark secret-a long-held, burning ambition to appear on the wildly popular British TV quiz show University Challenge-and now, finally, it seems the dream is about to become reality. He's made the school team, and they've completed the qualifying rounds and are limbering up for their first televised match.

David Gwyn Nicholls (1936–1996) was an English Anglican priest, theologian, and Caribbean studies scholar who authored more than one hundred publications in the fields of political theology and Caribbean studies.

David Nicholls follows up the phenomenally successful One Day with this amusing, but at times painfully real look at relationships between sons and fathers, between sons and mothers, and between wives and husbands. For those of you that have survived the teenage wars with your children, (I have recently graduated to survivor status. depending on the part that you’ve had to play, you very well may find yourself wanting to strangle/hug one or two of the characters in this book. The love for David Nicholls' books that is. I will admit, I liked Us many degrees more than I enjoyed the mess that was One Day, and even laughed at loud on more than one occasion.

David Nicholls’s Us, which had yet to be published when it was selected for the longlist of the Man Booker prize last summer, was widely regarded as the judges’ nod to popular taste, a kind of token cute blonde candidate for an award often criticized as quirky and elitist. Nicholls’s previous novel was the best-selling One Day, which served as the basis for a movie starring Anne Hathaway and Jim Sturgess.

This is a wonderful book. Each chapter is perfect all by itself, which makes it wonderful before-bed reading, or any time you do not have unlimited time to immerse yourself in a book. You will be totally immersed in each chapter, however. Each is a beautifully written time capsule.

Great little book to give someone in your life who hates to get presents. It is a used paperback I bought for a penny and well worth it. I bought two of them as gifts and both parties couldn't have been more pleased.
They arrived in great time and in very good condition, even though they were used.

This is one of my favorite books. It explores an America that sadly, with the passage of time, no longer exists. It's no longer in print so when you see it buy it.

Educational. Portrays America during the great depression and how ordinary people lived at that time. Superb.
Mr_Mole
Again, this was written prior to WWII and is more historical in nature. Outstanding writing. Got for my collection.
Andronrad
A wonderful book. Ernie Pyle traveled America not unlike the late Charles Kuralt, whose career followed many years later. Well worth the read in what it reveals about the nation during the pre-WWII era.

Facinating world long gone. Loved it!
Ernie Pyle is probably best known as a WWII war correspondent. "Ernie's America" is a great collection of short stories written during his extensive travels around the US during the 1930's.
