Product description

Amazon Review

On his only prior visit to Ireland, songwriter/comic Tony Hawks had seen a man hitchhiking with a refrigerator. For years, he was wont to tell the tale during late-night drinking matches, and after one particularly heavy-duty night of partying, he awoke to find a bet scrawled pillow-side: a friend wagered 100 pounds that Hawks wouldn't travel Ireland for a month with a refrigerator at his side.

Out of this stupid premise, a ridiculously amusing book was born. Quickly discovered by the Irish media, the thumbing Englishman finds that he and his box fridge are elevated to celebrity status, and there's no dearth of rides, places to stay or goofy people to meet, from kings to spoons players to locals who take his fridge surfing. As insightful about the strange inner workings of Hawk's mind as it is about charming peculiarities of Irishmen--it's doubtful that Hawks would have been similarly embraced by Germans, Italians, or the French--Round Ireland with a Fridge is an entirely silly, heart-warming tale told in a rollicking funny and refreshing style. --Melissa Rossi

Review

"Not just brilliantly written, but far too hilarious to read alone in a public place" (Sunday Independent, Ireland)

"Hawks's account shows the Irish at their whimsical best" (Daily Telegraph)

"Very light-hearted, he captures the generosity, warmth and humour of Ireland" (Red)

"Part autobiography, part travelogue, part insane Guinness-addled ramblings" (Irish Times)

"Absolutely brilliant from start to finish - Tony Hawks is just as funny at the written word as he is on the box" (Doncaster Courier)
