About this product
- DescriptionIn July 2010, Tom Doig and his best mate Tama Pugsley cycled 1487 kilometres across rthern Mongolia from a small town called Moron to a smaller town also called Moron. Why? Because it was there. Armed with spandex unitards, Chinese steel-frame mountain bikes, unidentifiable meat product and a woefully inadequate phrasebook, these two morons blunder into some of the world's most remote and beautiful wilderness - and triumph. Sort of. For 23 brutalising days - two days longer than the Tour de France - Tom and Tama slog their way over muddy mountains and across desolate steppes, all the time struggling to avoid Mongolia's legendary hospitality. This hilarious, thoroughly shonky odyssey overflows with sweat, miscommunication and torrents of Chinggis Khaan vodka - named after Genghis Khan, the greatest warrior who ever lived. Moron to Moron is a travel book like ne other. It has it all: pleasure, pain, heartache, heartburn and the dried fermented milk of a horse.
- Author BiographyTom Doig has been published in The Big Issue, The Lifted Brow, Sleepers Almanac and Voiceworks magazine. His plays include Survival of the Prettiest, Hitlerhoff and Selling Ice to the Remains of the Eskimos.
