Description - Do Not Pass Go by Tim Moore
In the wonderful world of Monopoly it still only costs o50 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 o10 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 others 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.
