About the Author

Paul Carter was born in England in 1969. His father's military career had the family moving all over the world, relocating every few years. Paul has worked in the oil industry now for fifteen years, relocating every few years (old habits). Paul has lived, worked, gotten into trouble and been given a serious talking to in England, Scotland, Germany, France, Holland, Norway, Portugal, Tunisia, Australia, Nigeria, Russia, Singapore, Malaysia, Borneo, Columbia, Vietnam, Thailand, Papua New Guinea, Sumatra, the Philippines, Korea, Japan, China, USA and Saudi Arabia. Today he lives in Perth with his wife, baby daughter and two motorbikes. But who knows where he'll be tomorrow . . .


PRAISE FOR PAUL CARTER: A torrent of tall tales from a life less ordinary. * Sunday Telegraph *
Carter is a kind of modern day Indiana Jones... a natural storyteller. * Sunday Tasmanian *
This is one of the most split-my-sides-laughing memoirs I think I have ever read . . . that blows along like the North Sea. * Northern Star *
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 humour and perfect timing. * The Age *
Ever wondered what happens to the boys from the movie Jackass when they grow up? They become oil rig workers. Shit happens, so some of the stuff that Paul Carter and his friends get hit with probably isn't their fault - although sitting at the top of an oil rig derrick during a thunderstorm is probably inviting God to hit you with something. Otherwise most of the madness and mayhem, interspersed with the occasional car or motorcycle accident and totally over the top practical jokes, are clearly all down to Paul. As for the chain-smoking monkeys, pool-playing ferrets and bartending orangutans . . . if the humans are crazy the animals should be too -- Tony Wheeler, founder of Lonely Planet
Great two-fisted writing from the far side of hell. -- John Birmingham, author
Literary black gold . . . Horrifying and hilarious. * Sun Herald *
A unique look at a gritty game. Relentlessly funny and obsessively readable. -- Phillip Noyce, film director
