'Restless Souls turns genre inside out . . . it never stops being a page-turner' Colum McCann After three years embedded in the Siege in Sarajevo, war correspondent Tom returns to Dublin a haunted shell of his former self. Laughably unqualified, but determined to see him through the darkness, his childhood friends Karl and Baz embark on a journey for an unlikely cure, to an experimental Californian clinic called Restless Souls. But as they try to save Tom from his memories, they are forced to confront their own - of what happened to the lost member of their group, Gabriel. 'Ambitious, rambunctious and extremely accomplished' Sunday Times 'A bawdy, alive, profane panegyric to the indissoluble bonds of friendship' Colin Barrett 'The funniest sad book I've read in a long time' J. Robert Lennon 'A tender, banter-filled debut' Daily Mail 'Sheehan is a brave new voice in fiction, fusing comedy and heart to explore a friendship transformed by trauma' Alexandra Kleeman
