Author Bill Bryson (Robert Redford), after living two decades in Britain, returned to New Hampshire. Now in his late 50s or early 60s he has lived there peacefully for the past ten years. A television interview reports that he has published several popular books and there is speculation he will be writing more. Bryson, however, has no such plans.
