Another Fine Mess

Another Fine Mess

Author: Tim Moore Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 08/11/2018

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!

Books, Bandits and Guns One man's war in Somalia

Author: Tim Moore, David Moore Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 25/07/2017

Tim Moore grew up in Kenya in the early twentieth century, as the son of a bookseller. In his lifetime he saw the change from the Protectorate of the British East Africa to Kenya Colony and then to the independent Republic of Kenya. In 1937 Tim signed up as a clerk at the headquarters of the King's African Rifles; two years later, war broke out. Before long, he found himself policing occupied territories in East Africa, protecting the populace from gangs of armed bandits. After military service Tim joined the Kenya Immigration Department and then became a probation officer, watching the development of Kenya's new probation service from the inside. The book is written in Tim's own words with additional content from his son David and is illustrated with photographs throughout. It gives a first-hand account of operations on a continent sometimes neglected in accounts of the Second World War.

Cyclist Who Went Out in the Cold

Cyclist Who Went Out in the Cold

Author: Tim Moore Format: eBook Release Date: 29/06/2017

Random House presents the unabridged downloadable audiobook edition of The Cyclist Who Went Out in the Cold, written and read by Tim Moore.'Bill Bryson on two wheels' IndependentScaling a new peak of rash over-ambition, Tim Moore tackles the 9,000km route of the old Iron Curtain on a tiny-wheeled, two-geared East German shopping bike. Asking for trouble and getting it, he sets off from the northernmost Norwegian-Russian border at the Arctic winter's brutal height, bullying his plucky MIFA 900 through the endless and massively sub-zero desolation of snowbound Finland. Sleeping in bank vaults, imperial palaces and unreconstructed Soviet youth hostels, battling vodka-breathed Russian hostility, Romanian landslides and a diet of dumplings, Moore and his 'so-small bicycle' are sustained by the kindness of reindeer farmers and Serbian rock gods, plus a shameful addiction to Magic Man energy drink. Haunted throughout by the border detritus of watchtowers and rusted razor wire, Moore reflects on the curdling of the Communist dream, and the memories of a Cold War generation reared on the fear of apocalypse - at a time of ratcheting East-West tension. After three months, 20 countries and a 58-degree jaunt up the centigrade scale, man and bike finally wobble up to a Black Sea beach in Bulgaria, older and wiser, but mainly older.

Surviving the Suffering

Surviving the Suffering

Author: Tim Moore Format: eBook Release Date: 21/04/2017

As a practicing cardiovascular surgeon, I have seen firsthand much suffering. The profession that I have chosen means that a few people under my care each year will die. I have seen all of the emotions man can feel under these circumstances, from rage to peace, from fear to calm, from sadness to hope. I have seen optimism cruelly crushed, and unsalvageable situations miraculously changed.

Gironimo!

Author: Tim Moore Format: eBook Release Date: 15/05/2015

The 1914 Giro d'Italia was the most difficult bike race in history; eighty-one riders started and only eight finished. Now Tim Moore is going to attempt it himself, and he's committed to total authenticity.Twelve years after Tim Moore toiled around the route of the Tour de France, he senses his achievement being undermined by the truth about "e;Horrid Lance."e; His rash response is to take on a fearsome challenge from an age of untarnished heroes: the notorious 1914 Giro d'Italia. History's most appalling bike race was an ordeal of 400-kilometer stages filled with cataclysmic storms, roads strewn with nails, and even the loss of an eye by one competitor-and it was all on a diet of raw eggs and red wine.Of the eighty-one riders who rolled out of Milan, only eight made it back. To truly capture the essence of what these riders endured a century ago, Tim acquires the ruined husk of a gearless, wooden-wheeled 1914 road bike, some maps, and an alarming period outfit topped off with a pair of blue-lensed welding goggles. As Moore rides up and over the Alps and then down to the Adriatic (with only wine corks for brakes), Gironimo! is an adventure that is by turns bold, beautiful, and madly inspiring.
