"A deeply revealing memoir about settling down, both with a woman and in his own skin. An unflinchingly honest examination of his life…McCarthy holds nothing back. Like the best travel, accompanying him on his road toward self-awareness and the woman he loves is much more about the journey than the destination." ( Gothammagazine) On eight soul-searching voyages, Andrew McCarthy explores the path from his New Jersey roots, where acting saved his lifeand early fame almost took it awayto his transformation into a leading travel writer. He faces the real costs of his early success and lays bare the evolving nature of his relationships with women. He explores a strained bond with his father and how this complex dynamic shapes his own identity as a parent. And throughout it all, he charts a steady climb from ambivalence to confidence, from infidelity and recklessness to acceptance, and a deeper understanding of the internal conflicts of his life. Disarmingly likable, McCarthy is open, honest, and authentic on every page, and what emerges is a "soulful and searching book…a long, strange trip in the direction of full-throttle love" (Cheryl Strayed, The New York Times Book Review).
