Pretty in Pink actor Andrew McCarthy (pictured, via) has landed a deal with Simon & Schuster’s Free Press imprint to write a memoir on “the transformative power of travel.”
According to the release, the book will discuss McCarthy’s journeys to seven exotic locations from the Amazon to Kilimanjaro. Senior editor Alessandra Bastagli negotiated the deal with Kuhn Projects literary agent David Kuhn.
McCarthy had this statement: “Simply put, travel has changed the chemistry of who I am. It has rewritten the internal map of my life and consequently, altered the lens through which I see the world. In my experience, the power of travel to liberate and transform knows no limits.”
