Tim Moore was born in Chipping Norton in 1964. After a curiously truncated academic career he found journalistic employment interviewing people he’d never heard of and writing on subjects of which he knew nothing – most notably video games, which for three years he reviewed full-time.
In 1998 Tim accidentally embarked on the therapeutic Arctic voyage that was to spawn Frost on My Moustache, a critically-acclaimed comic travelogue that regrettably took its name from the punchline of an offensive joke. This was followed by Continental Drifter, French Revolutions, Do Not Pass Go, Spanish Steps, Nul Points, I Believe in Yesterday, and You Are Awful (But I Like You). Gironimo! (2014), his book about cycling the route of the notorious 1914 Giro d’Italia and The Cyclist Who Went Out in the Cold: Adventures Along the Iron Curtain Trail (2017) were published by Yellow Jersey. Another Fine Mess, a book about what Tim discovers travelling Trumpland in a T-Ford Model, will be published in November 2018 by Yellow Jersey.
In between books he goes on holidays and writes about them for the Daily Telegraph, the Observer, the Sunday Times, the Guardian, the Financial Times and BBC Lonely Planet Magazine. He lives in west London with his family.
