Another Fine Mess: Across Trumpland in a Ford Model T with Tim Moore

‘With Donald Trump in the White House, is the American Dream Over?’ This was the headline that dispatched travel writer Tim Moore on a 6000-mile transatlantic road trip in a 100-year-old Model T Ford with wooden wheels, from coast to coast across the counties with the highest Trump vote.

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 folk who voted red, or rather orange, along the way. 

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

Tim Moore is the author of Gironimo!, French Revolutions, Do Not Pass Go, Spanish Steps, Nul Points, I Believe In Yesterday and more. His writing has appeared in the Daily Telegraph, the Observer, the Sunday Times andEsquire.
