Tim Moore - indefatigable travelling everyman - switches two wheels for four as he journeys across Trumpland in an original Model T Ford.

Lacking even the most basic mechanical knowhow, Tim Moore sets out to cross Trumpland USA in an original Model T Ford. Armed only with a fan belt made of cotton, wooden wheels and a trunkload of 'wise-ass Limey liberal gumption', his route takes him exclusively through Donald-voting counties, meeting the everyday folks who voted red along the way. He meets a people defined by extraordinary generosity, willing to shift heaven and earth to keep him on the road. And yet, this is clearly a nation in conflict with itself: citizens 'tooling up' in reaction to ever-increasing security fears; a healthcare system creaking to support sugar-loaded soda lovers; a disintegrating rust belt all but forgotten by the warring media and political classes.

With his trademark blend of slapstick humour, affable insight and butt-clenching peril, Tim Moore invites us on an unforgettable road trip through America. Buckle up!

MEDIA REVIEWS

'An easy and enjoyable read, it's as much about the roadtrip in a vintage car as it is observations on the current political climate in America.' - Classic Ford 

'Moore... [is] very good at soaking up the strangeness of America and relating it to readers with an easy-going observational humour that only threatens to desert him when he contemplates the excesses of the current administration.' - Alistair Mabbott, The Herald

'Hilarious and scary often in equal measure.' - Nat Barnes, Daily Express

'This is The Wizard of Oz in reverse - an attempt to uncover the source of what went wrong in America... What lingers is the stories of communities brimming with people who worked like dogs to learn a trade in a country they believed would reward them.' - Jane Graham, Big Issue

'Alarmingly full of incident, very funny - even mildly transformative.' - Jane Shilling, Daily Mail
