9780099546931: You Are Awful (But I Like You): Travels Through Unloved Britain

Would you cheer if they sent you to Coventry?

Could you stick up for Stoke or big-up Bracknell?

Can you handle the thrill of Rhyl, the heaven of Hull or the mirth of Tydfil?

In You are Awful, Tim Moore drives his Austin Maestro round all the places on our beloved island that nobody wants to go to – our most miserable towns, shonkiest hotels, scariest pubs, and silliest sea zoos...

But as the soggy, decrepit quest unfolds he finds himself oddly smitten, and the result is a rousing, nostalgic celebration of mad, bad But I Like You Britain.

Review:

"Funny and squirmingly vivid" (Daily Telegraph)

"There aren’t many travel writers funnier than Tim Moore" (Independent on Sunday)

"A fine piece of comic writing...by the end of the book he is, unlike his Maestro, firing on all cylinders" (Nick Lezard Guardian)

"A pilgrimage to the most derelict, unlovable and forlorn parts of Britain" (Independent)

"Hilarious" (Sun)

"There's a true affection in the descriptions of bypasses, roundabouts and rainy caravan parks" (Tom Cox Daily Mail)

"Moore is...a likeable guide and a witty turner of phrases, and his plunges into local history as he tootles around in his decrepit Austin Maestro demonstrate a gift for bathos and an eye for the poetry of dereliction" (Euan Ferguson Time Out)

"Moore has a nice line in description...and is able to describe the many absurdities encountered on his travels with admirable detachment" (Choice Magazine)

"Hilarious... This book will have you in stitches... What emerges is a nostalgic celebration of just how mad Britain can be (5 stars)" (Hannah Britt Daily Express)

"Tim Moore's wry portraits of unfashionable British towns nicely combine knockabout humour, witty one-liners and an undertow of sadness" (Sally Cousins Sunday Telegraph)
