Some other Rainbow was the the first.  It was written with his friend Jill Morrell and details the hostage years through his perspective and through the eyes of his loves ones at home. "An astonishing achievement: while often wildly funny, it is also humbling, draining, exhausting and ultimately exhilarating to read'

"One of the funniest and most moving testaments to friendship that one is likely to read.' Sunday Times 

From a friendship born out of adversity comes an extraordinary story by two extraordinary men.  Five years after their release, Brian and John chose to travel together to see how the reality of Chile matched their imagination and to revisit their past experiences.  Between Extremes is the story of that journey, which once more found them far from home, in an unfamiliar landscape, but which for the first time allowed them to live by their own rules.

H1 ArrowA Ghost Upon Your Path 

We all have a need to belong, to have a place and people we feel tied to -our house, our hometown, our nation.  Ever since he first visited Ireland with his family twenty years ago, John McCarthy has felt a strong affinity with its people and landscape.  Yet in spite of his Irish name, he never thought of himself as Irish. This book is an account of his experiences walking in the footsteps of his ancestors in Kerry and is a perceptive and delicate analysis of the Irish situation.  It is a delightful evocation of the open-hearted locals of his adopted village.
