A book that tells the story of London since the Thirties through the 26 streets and stations of the Monopoly board. Acclaimed comic writer Tim Moore travels through the best and the worst that the city of London has to offer. He will stay in hotels in the Old Kent Road and Mayfair; visit Pentonville prison; search for Free Parking; contemplate how the grotty cul-desac that is Vine Street made it onto the board; visit The Angel, Islington - which isn't a road at all but a pub - and who knows, along the way, he could even win second prize in a beauty contest. A funny and meticulously well-researched book, Do Not Pass Go! offers the reader a page-turning history of London through the world's most popular board game.

Book Description Vintage Publishing, United Kingdom, 2004. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. A book that tells the story of London since the thirties through the 28 streets, stations and utililties of the Monopoly board. In the wonderful world of Monopoly it still only cost -50 to buy a house in Islington, you can move around London with the shake of a dice and even park your car for free. In Do Not Pass Go Tim Moore, belying his reputation as a player who always paid that -10 fine rather than take a Chance, fearlessly tackles the real thing and along the way tells the story of a game and the city that frames it. Sampling the rags and the riches he stays in a hotel in Mayfair and one in the Old Kent Road, enjoys quality time with Dr Crippen in Pentonville Prison and even winds up at the wrong end of the Water Works pipe. And, solving all the mysteries you ll have pondered whilst languishing in jail and many other you certainly wouldn t, Tim Moore reveals how Pall Mall got its name, which three addresses you won t find in your A-Z and why the sorry cul-de-sac that is Vine Street has a special place in the heart of Britain s most successful Monopoly champion. The stirring travelogue of one man s erratic progress around those 28 streets, stations and utilities, Do Not Pass Go is also an epic and lovingly researched history of London s wayward progress in the 66 years since the launch of the world s most popular board game.
