Rezension:

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 2010-05-28)

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 2010-05-30)

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 2010-06-01)

Quiet, considered and oddly gripping. (Chris Moss Time Out 2010-07-22)
