            ARC OF A LIFE
Escapades of an Adventurer
             Andrew Reilly

Traveler, Adventurer, Observer, Geopolitics Expert, Teacher, Writer, Actor, Author…


Andrew Reilly's book is a guide to the international politics, history and social life of numerous countries where Andrew spent part of his life – an amazing life many people dream of: free of daily routine and full of excitement and discoveries!


As Andrew's saga threads its way through over 50 countries around the globe, the story becomes a chronicle of our times – detailing the author's adventures hitchhiking across Europe, Russia, North Africa, the Middle East and beyond, learning as he traveled and earning a living in places he had never been.


Working as a stevedore on the docks of Hamburg, a British Army PX clerk in Berlin, ship-fitter in the US, grape harvester in France, miner near Death Valley, film/TV actor in Los Angeles and China, theater director in Russia and Hong Kong, and as a "Fulbright Scholar" English teacher in Saudi Arabia, Afghanistan, Romania, and Russia, Andrew Reilly has seen life in all its myriad aspects. He recounts those up-close encounters in this journal as seen through the eyes of an adventurer living in our restless age.

"Andrew is a traveler, adventurer, observer, geopolitics expert, teacher, writer, actor and author of this book about his amazing life at the turn of the century. Arc of a Life is a guide to international politics, history and the social life of a long list of countries where Andrew spent part of his life – a life many people dream of: free of daily routine and full of excitement and discoveries!" ~ Dr. Elena Balashova, Head of Foreign Languages Department, Saratov State Legal Academy, Saratov, Russia


"Andrew Reilly  has spent his entire life on the move, occupation to occupation, country to country.  Along the way, he became a true global citizen, an ambassador for us all.  What a life!  What a journey.  What a delight is Andrew’s book." ~ Ed Hooks, TV/Film Actor, international acting teacher, Lisbon, Portugal


"All people struggle in life to make sense of their surroundings but few dare tell their inner thoughts let alone openly record them. US citizens rarely venture to the outside world, journey to 50 countries and candidly write of their life changes. Reilly shows that a person can transcend a common background by traveling outside the beaten path in an adventure that helps personal transformation…" ~ Mazin Qumsiyeh, Professor and Author, Bethlehem University

"Highly recommend! An adventurous story from a true adventurer. The book has vibrant dynamics and energy – and you can explore many exciting and meaningful stories from all around the globe." 

~ Hyunsoo Lee, President Oregon Fulbright Association       (5 Stars)
