Maeve Higgins used to think she’d live in Ireland forever. She used to think a lot of crazy things, like ‘macadamia nuts are a light snack’. Then the stunning and humble comedian switched to almonds, gave away all of her possessions and left Ireland with just a carry-on bag filled to the brim with a positive attitude.
New York has been kind to our Celtic princess and she’s ready to return the favour, by making friends with as many weirdos as possible and writing about it.
If you loved her last book – and everybody except her family and friends did – you’ll lose your mind and break your heart at this one! Full of amazing stories (she once stayed quiet for ten days); wonderful advice (if you like a guy, get all the same tattoos as him, then introduce yourself and act surprised at the coincidence); and brilliantly unreliable memories, Off You Go will make your day, your night and your bed – if you let it.
