Editorial Reviews

Review

Every page contains something enthralling or bizarre or funny or perceptive ... Moran has the poet's ability to finds the remarkable in the commonplace ... a beautiful little book: an argument, if ever there was one, for staying home this summer, finding the nearest traffic jam and enjoying it. -- Craig Brown * Mail on Sunday, ***** * A beauftifully-written, quiet masterpiece ... Moran's genius is to show us what was right in front of us all along' -- Bee Wilson * Sunday Times * Terrific ... he takes numerous diversions into subjects that really shouldn't be interesting, but which he makes fascinating. -- Robert Macfarlane * Guardian * In this book Joe Moran maps the fascinating history of British roads... -- Charlotte Vowden * Daily Express * A stylish and witty analysis of Britain's maze-like road system. They are cultural artefacts as much as a means of transport; they are too a kind of parallel universe. -- Philip Womack * Sunday Telegraph * Anyone who likes Bill Bryson will love Joe Moran -- I think he may even be eclipsing him...it's a terrific book. -- Joel Morris * BBC 6 Music * Quiet, considered and oddly gripping. -- Chris Moss * Time Out *
