Product description

Review

"Great two-fisted writing from the far side of hell." -- John Birmingham

"ÝCarter's¨ struck literary black gold with these stories, which are both horrifying and hilarious."

"What you have here is that rare situation of somebody who not only has a story to tell but the ability to tell it. Carter's anecdotes are told with great good humor and perfect timing."

Review

"Great two-fisted writing from the far side of hell." (John Birmingham)

"A unique look at a gritty game. Relentlessly funny and obsessively readable." (Phillip Noyce)

"Paul Carter has led an amazing and intriguing life working on oil rigs throughout the world. His experiences reinforce the adage that truth can be stranger than fiction. However, one is never quite sure throughout this production if he has an overarching narrative to tell or if he is just slinging together a loosely connected series of entertaining anecdotes. Though slightly disjointed, his tales are intriguing – and made more so by the jovial Australian accent with which he recounts his exploits. Energy permeates his narration, and his caricatured impersonations of the various people who populate his stories, surprisingly, add to the listener's enjoyment." (AudioFile Magazine)
