    DescriptionWhilst in Ireland for an International Song Competition, Tony Hawks was amazed to see a hitch-hiker, trying to thumb a lift, but with a fridge. This seemed amazingly optimistic - his Irish friends, however thought nothing of it at all. 'I had clearly arrived in a country', writes Tony, 'where the qualifications for 'eccentric' involved a great deal more than that to which I had become used'. Two years pass but the fridge incident haunts our author. Until one night, heavy with drink, he finds himself arguing about Ireland with a friend. It is, he insists, a 'magical place', so magical in fact, that a man could even get a lift with a fridge. The next morning there is a note by the bed. 'I hereby bet Tony Hawks the sum of One Hundred Pounds that he cannot hitch-hike around the circumference of Ireland with a fridge within one calendar month'. The document was signed. The bet was made. This audiobook is the story of Tony's adventures through that incredible month, the people he meets, the difficulties, the triumphs, and the fridge.

    Review quote
    "Praise for Round Ireland with a Fridge: 'So entertainingly told you'll wish you were in the pub with him' - The Times" "Praise for Playing the Moldovans at Tennis: 'Wonderfully funny' - The Times" "Praise for One Hit Wonderland: 'A wonderfully shaggy dog story - all the more wonderful for it actually having happened... funny and engaging' - Daily Telegraph 'Extremely entertaining' - Observer" "Hawks knows how to tell a story; he makes a fine job of recounting his journey hitchhiking round Ireland. His natural chatty style belies that he is reading." Financial Times
