‘The Road to McCarthy is mercilessly, relentlessly funny…McCarthy is an accomplished writer, snappy and shrewd…’ Terry Eagleton

‘the funniest book I’ve read this year’ John Walsh The Independent

‘a hilariously funny writer’ The Times

Pete McCarthy’s first book McCarthy’s Bar sold half a million copies in less than a year, beating Bill Bryson and Louis de Bernieres to the no. 1 bestseller slot. His second book, The Road to McCarthy is also an international bestseller and sees the irrepressible Pete take a journey from Cork and Belfast to Morocco, New York, Tasmania, Monserrat and Alaska.

Pete McCarthy is a brilliant live performer who has previously been nominated for a Perrier Award and served time as resident compere at The Comedy Store. He is in much demand at literary festivals, theatres, and Irish pubs around the world.

‘McCarthy had a sell-out crowd rolling in the aisles at the Melbourne Writers Festival’ The South China Morning Post
