Easily the funniest writer around at the moment!,
This review is from: Frost On My Moustache: The Arctic Exploits of a Lord and a Loafer (Paperback)
I love Tim Moore's books and this one is his best. I cannot recommend 'Frost on my Moustache' highly enough. On the slightly risable premise of following in the footsteps of some 18th century gent, Moore embarks on an uncomfortable, unlikely and unglamourous trawl around Northern Europe, largely by sea - unfortunate as he is profusely and lavishly sea sick. The bike ride across Iceland with his Brother-in-Law is also priceless, prefiguring his attempt to follow the Tour de France in his later book, French Revolutions.
Moore is some sort of comic genius who combines travel with history and humour, and is never afraid to send himself up as being slightly inept and a bit poncy. Three years on, I am still boring people by harping on about how good this book is.
