Another Fine Mess

£14.99

Tim Moore – indefatigable travelling everyman – switches two wheels for four as he journeys across Trumpland in an original Model T Ford. Lacking any mechanical knowledge or intuition, he sets off to bully a car from East to West armed only with a top speed of 25 mph, a fan belt made of cotton, wooden wheels (again) and a truckload of ‘wise-ass Limey liberal gumption’. His route takes him exclusively through Trump-voting counties as he travels the nation meeting the everyday folk who voted red, or rather orange. Along the way he drives through the disintegrating rust belt, Detroit – the spiritual home of the Model T, through the mid-west, cowboy country and finally threading he way through a lonely stretch of Oregon, ‘where everyone is either a lumberjack or a prison officer’. And he needs to do it in three months before the wall goes up and he’s booted back to Blighty.
