Tim Moore - indefatigable travelling everyman - switches two wheels for four as he journeys across Trumpland in an original Model T Ford. `Alarmingly full of incident, very funny - even mildly transformative' Daily Mail 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 *
