What to expect

Random House presents the audiobook edition of Another Fine Mess, written and read by Tim Moore.

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 Trump’s America. Buckle up!

Listen to a sample

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

Big Issue

Alarmingly full of incident, very funny – even mildly transformative

Daily Mail

Hilarious and scary often in equal measure

Daily Express

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

The Herald

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
